Not ideal when the heat shield screws into the plastic tank tho


No I’ll give you that. Ok for the shields over the cat etc. Just need to make sure it’s not screwing through something it shouldn’t. Those threaded washer things are hopeless after a few years on a salty road.

As I haven't owned a trailer myself for bloody ages - I'm unaware of the legalities for them now. Are they tested? Need a certificate or anything? I'm OK with insurance etc... but want to know if they need a gov check or anything.

Couldn't find clarification - specific - online.

 

Edit - I am aware of anything after 2012 - I was meaning earlier - old stock or converted ones………. sorry for forgetting that bit.

I’ve checked and you’re right - missing exhaust heat shield is indeed now an MOT fail.

Thanks for the answers gents.

Yup, deffo a series VI Farina Morris Oxford. The yellow spotlights are aftermarket, but rather fetching. And a Sunbeam Rapier.

What's the best way to paint a chrome luggage rack for a scooter? I'd like to paint over the chrome with black. 

 

Must I strip it or can I use plast-coat or whatnot?

If you want to paint, you'll need to key the surface so scouring pads or similar, etching primer and top coat. Still, you're painting on top of chrome so if that starts to flake off your paint is coming with it.

 

Plasti-dip, as Shite Knight has found with his Fresian Sierra, only really sticks to itself - but on a luggage rack that's ideal. Give the whole thing one good coat and it doesn't matter if it sticks to the chrome or not, it'll form a luggage-rack shaped outer shell.

 

You can also look at "bed liner" or whatever which is a hardcore version of plasti-dip intended for pickup beds.

Key the surface then apply etch primer before finish coat.

I wouldn't touch the chrome with any abrasives, you'll cut through it and it may well peel, if it hasn't already in some places. You need a multi surface primer of the sort used prior to painting on tiles but before that you need to thoroughly degrease the fuck out of the rack, a bloody good polish with autosol followed by a good clean down with cellulose thinners.
