    Hello everyone, I am thinking about doing a full tear down of my 2001 Yamaha Blaster so that I can properly paint it and change all the rusty bolts out. If anyone can help me and give some suggestions and recommendations, they will be greatly appreciated. When I say any advise I mean anything from paint color to tear down techniques just let me know. Thank you and have a great day. ALSO WHERE CAN I GET A GOOD BOLT KIT?

    X2 on bolt kit. Prep work is key to good paint job. Start by power washing EVERYTHING. Any bare metal should get self etching primer. Everything should get primer after sanding? roughing surface.
    Any ground should have paint removed and dielectric grease used before assembly.
    I really like this paint or similar stainless paint for axles and bolts/nuts. Pretty durable even on bolt heads
