Honda C90 – engine & hub paint

I used VHT SP995 CAST Aluminium Engine Enamel Paint to paint the engine cases and wheel hubs. The cases had been repainted once before so I couldn’t really tell if it is a good match or not ( perhaps a bit sparkly? ). Apparently the original paint used by Honda was called Silver Cloud but I have no idea where you might find it.

Here are the parts cleaned up and ready for painting:

prep: paint scraped and sanded
