Hi guys, this week I am working on getting the Akrapovic for TheBeast done.
Of course this is all captured in video, but here you will be able to follow the progress.
Its never good when I am using the drilling machine... well, maybe this is going to be one of the Most expensive Vlogs I have done.
New update 14.12.2020
Finally main exhaust part looks awesome stainless steel part look awesome too. All i need is to wait for carbon parts from my buddy from bicycle shop and I can finish this quite a big project / challange.
Finally I have time to play around the exhaust again. Today it was bit of a cleaning day of the main part, and I can tell you, the exhaust does not look good and definatelly its about time to give to this Akrapovic nice new Black Matt color.
Those leaks you see, there are done most probably by using "color shine-ers". Once the exhaust is hot, those chemicals melts and burn that ugly pattern.
Nothing that Asphalt remover and sanding fleece can not do :)
And yes, in the new episode, you will see Coke in action as well :)
Tomorrow there will be a new story update
Carbpn parts are separated from the exhaust and wetsanding has started. Its taking much more time that expected, but the carbon is in really bad shape
First attemp on clear coating. Photo on right is the carbon item after wetsanding and photo on left is after aplication of one layer of clear coat
Two items are done, still one more layer will be applied. The main carbon part that has the mayor look damage and its burned as hell, needs some more sanding. And then, items will go to the oven for activation of permanent protection
