Yeh...the inside of the headlight unit lens was a bit milky cloudy...fortunately the headlight bulb holder is old skool LARGE...so once you remove it you can actually get inside to clean up the lens.....I've been known to use artists paintbrushes in the past to remove cloudiness from the inside of units.....brushes with plastic handles that you can bend with heat to be bendable to reach all inside faces of the units


I did the same with the twin round headlights on my SB6. They were very foggy, but cleaned up like new

Looking great 2bims! Nice work on the hand cut stickers too. The mufflers came up really nice Cool


Its a new Plasticote paint I've been trying...Chrome plate finish...initially very impressed....No words on the can as regards heat proofness...so the test of time will tell...the end cans dont really get too hot on a two stroke anyhow

Cheers for the plaudits on the hand cut urinating boy sticker...it did take me friggin ages...but I managed to retain it as a one piece unit.....then stuck it on....I wouldn't have tried a second time

Yeh...I've done a few units...thinking it was ageing of the glass/Perspex lens...but no...just a build up of fogginess that doesnt clear without wiping it...The DB4 units are the hardest to do as theres only a small holes to access the sealed beam unit from one side only when the bulb is removed...hence using artists paint brushes which I heat with a hair drier to bend the plastic stems so I get better reach inside
