Hey! I thought I would share what I have been doing on this sunny day we had today in Essex.
First, my exhaust was a rusty wreck which needed something doing to it, I gave it a bit of a rub down, then a good soaking.
I don't have a washing line, so found an old bit of wire

After drying, I used some Rustoleum BBQ & Stove paint.
I started out with some light coats about 30cm away, then left it 10 mins for drying before applying a slightly thicker coat.
After I used the entire can of paint, the result was as expected, looking brand new!

I had a slight rattle on the Yammy, but after taking off and painting the exhaust, the rattle disappeared. Result!
After looking around the bike for any rusty spots I could repair, I noticed the horn was a rotting mess, it's probably nothing serious, but OCD told me to do it!

Ew, what a mess.
Anyway, I taped up the rusty chrome and sanded the shell with some wet and dry till it was nice and smooth.

Luckily enough I found some black spray paint in the cupboard, thin coat, then slightly thicker again after leaving 10 minutes.

The finished result!

I am not really bothered about the rusty screw in the middle as I didn't really want to ruin the chrome for it, if it aint broke don't fix it
My next step is to replace the 501 bulbs and change them for some LED's as one side has blown, I may aswell!
