    Hello all,

    I am new to this forum but glad I have some place to go for help.

    I have a 1983 250WR and I’m planning on restoring it. The part that I’m stuck on is once I strip the old paint off the cases, what other steps if any do I need to take into consideration before repainting them. The reason I’m asking is I have never dealt with magnesium cases before. Also, from what I have gathered, I cannot find an aerosol engine paint that hold up to fuel. So what other engine paints are recommended. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
