I didn't get that out of your original post. I am almost done with a 901 that I wanted to do a real nice job on. I took a lot of parts off, that as you say, are in the way. I put fasteners in groups in slots cut in card board. I cleaned parts as I removed them, and gave them all acid treatment. I then hung all the removed parts and applied the epoxy primer to everything including chassis and fasteners at once. I primed many smaller parts by dipping them before spraying all the larger parts. I then applied three coats of orange XX1 red. I then put most of the removed parts back on and scuffed everything, since this time I was outside the cure window. I then applied two more coats of red, then started over with the gray sheet metal. It is very time consuming, but it depends on what you want to achieve.

Thank you Showcrop. I will continue on doing as you suggest. Another question for the group is what to do with the fender brackets. They are bolted and riveted on. There is minor rusting between the brackets and the fenders so I'm wondering what to do about the rivets. Removing the rivets can be done but will be impossible to replace them. And replacing them with carriage bolts looks like the only alternative. Any suggestions there ?

On my 960 I replaced the rivets with carriage bolts. Dip them in phosphoric acid for a minute to etch the plating before you prime them.
