remember.... preperation is 99% of a good job (laying the paint is the second 99%) anything you can see in the primer WILL show in the final coat.... so get it right from the beginning.... also, you might find some interesting things in the "orignal" honda paint....
here is a radiator fin... it was 78-9 burgendy on the outside black on the inside, and look what was under it all, but an early "blue" color
here is some "seams" that show in the metal tank work outlined in red
and again (these really showed through) at the far end you can see the nipple connection.... I smoothed around it with bondo so it would not look like a welded on piece
also you can see where I used bond (circled in green) to smooth things out
here you can see some rust pitting (showed through the primer) which I then corrected with some more plastic filler -- you must removeALL THE RUST.... if you paint over it... it will rust through... this was sand blasted to get it off
not all these showed up.... but several did.... fix them now or look at them forever
