Vapor blast is better than Glass bead as it leaves NO profile. I have had a few things done recently and well impressed with the finish.

Hideous gunky mess. Wash and degrease then paint and new gaiters.

Nice work Wayne...

What's your preferred sealant for the paper gasket under the cam covers? 

On my HC the manual says to fit the cam cover gaskets dry? Although I used Wellseal on the first one before I read that page 🙄

Maybe the LC is different?

Not worth starting anything now...🍺

Mmmm, Dry interesting. I was going to  use Wellseal or hylomar. Was just interested to see what Wayne recommends. There are a lot of options. I thought the only dry fitted gasket was the plastic oil pump one?
