When you reach the point you're tired of sanding that means you're about 30% through your sanding. But you knew that

It must be tempting to Cerakote the engine...

I'm going to loose, because I'm being motivated by my opponent's build thread, located HERE.

Yea more than likely I'm going to attempt it... I hate prep work around sensitive parts though, like bearings, gaskets, etc. So that will be a lot of work. Aluminum Oxide will get everywhere and stick to everything. It doesn't matter how well you tape it off.

Or I may just let it bump, depending on how it looks when I get it. I like the looks of all SV motors, black, steel, or mix, I like them..

If it was air cooled, then I'd cerakote it without question. I like the looks of the heat sinks one color and the fins another, I think that looks kinda snazzy.

I took a socket an grinded the slots for the steering stem nut... Well it ain't pretty, but it was only 4 dollars, and I'm able to torque my steering stem to specs. The cheapest one I could find on eBay was 30. Make sure you get a deep or you'll be making two like I did.
