For all you 23er's = BSD plug. When you change your oil/filter pull the pan & the balance shafts & plug the oil feed hole w/ a plug & swedge it in. You will find a freer revving motor & now holds 6qtrs & add a FL842 filter too.

You could ask here.

But what do you mean by bad? Runny? splotchy? Not sticking? Posting pics could help too. :)

Dont worry about it man. Just do another coat. The thicker the better for that stuff. You could always post pics tomorrow, and posting in the plastidip thread will help because maybe someone has had a similiar problem.

it looks strange at first kenny. it's just a bunch of little dots. but that's how it's supposed to be. keep doing light coats, and wait 10-20 minutes between each coat.
