Hello Daniel each one in your collection shines nicely, did you painted them all?

Welcome Daniel!

Really nice restorations :goodjob: . And it is obvious that you are doomed, the collecting disease got you. No cure, just soothing the symptoms with a saw now and then :lol: .

If you get them, no matter how and why, guard them well!

You seem to have a very good painting skill Daniel, the matte-black for the top shroud goes very nicely.

That's a fantastic job Daniel.
The day before I made a short study on painting to magnesium;
Microscopic views of magnesium
here I posted some pics of the surface of this metal, before and after heating the metal.
I found some oily stuff coming out of the pores of old and used magnesium parts, which probably affects painting to them.
One of my friends says he most always bake mag parts before painting, and also gives wash to the parts after baking.
Could you tell me how you give preparations to these mag parts before painting if you do not mind please, thanks.

Hi chy, preperation for me is cleaning with a toululene based solvent, sand and 2 pac epoxy primer and bake at 80 degrees celsius for 20 minutes, then basecoat and clearcoat, bake again at80 degrees for minimum 40 minutes. I didn't even consider what metal i was painting but have not noticed any bleed through.The primer is made for metal so it seems to hold up well without peeling or chipping.

Good evening Daniel, it's very informative to know this baking temperature. I have been thinking it to be more higher, something like over 100 degrees Celsius. This temperature of 80 degrees is not so hard thing to do with our home oven, will try it for my saw parts.

Yes, 80 degrees clelsius for 40 minutesis all that is required for the automotive paints we use, you can just bake lower for longer also. I looked at your link on the magnesium bleed, intersting stuff. I hope this is helpful to you.
