Sleeping beauty restoration has begun!

Here is what she has endured so far:
Removed all cosmetics-fairing, trunk, seat, etc
Removed rear wheel and she just today had a fresh tire mounted. Shop charged $25
Removed and derusted gas tank.- soaked tank with vinegar overnight, then soaked in degreaser, then power washed inside to a sparkling shine . Quickly rinsed with acetone to absorb excess water and finally lined with red-Kote. This will cure for 24 hrs and she's ready for some fresh gas.
Have to wait to install gas tank before installing rear tire. Will clean rear hub and apply some fresh grease.
Whew!! I'm tired already!!

I can do that to a car and not even think about it, but I can't go to sleep with one single panel removed from bike. Good luck with the restoration.
