I just purchased an 850 Commando with only 2500 original miles. Problem is the idiot I got it from left it in a leaky shed for 10 years. It is in pretty good shape and will need new paint and polishing. I have removed the top end to re-ring it and to check cyls and valves out etc. etc.. It looks great inside with no rust. There is a little oxidation on the cyls and I would like to paint it with an original looking black paint. What heat proof paint should I use and how do I prep the cyls before painting??? Also should I sand blast or bead blast the head to get her looking good?? Thanks for any help. You guys have been great!!!
