Hey guys, My YZ450F's frame looks very poor as seen in this thread: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=819459&highlight=frame+corrosion I'm going to strip the bike down to the bare frame soon. I bought a bunch of wet-or-dry sandpaper and figured I'd sand the frame by hand, however I'm worried that it'll make the frame look shiny, even when using coarser sandpaper. I definitelly want to keep the dull, factory finish/look. I'm wondering if I can achieve the factory look by getting the frame sandblasted. I've searched on this forum and on google, but I can't find any pictures of a sandblasted frame. I'm sure someone on here has had his/her frame sandblasted and I was hoping that person could post a few pictures. I'm also wondering if there is a way to protect the white sticker in the front with the serial number on it. I would really appreciate some tips and advice on sandblasting. Thanks in advance!
