I've been getting the SR500 tank ready to paint, starting with chemically stripping the original paint. I'd never tried the Rust-Oleum aerosol aircraft stripper, but it is now my favorite. It took the paint off quickly, and left much less of a mess than brush-on types I've used before. In the picture is the tank after using the stripper and a plastic scraper, and then a wipe-down with paper towels. Much less left over residue than the brush-on types.
I had planned on using some reproduction Yamaha enduro tank decals, but found these while looking on ebay. I think they will look really neat. I still haven't decided on paint color.
