My Bike: painting small parts

I spent Sunday cleaning a few small items and experimenting with spray finishes in my garage as I didn't want absolutely everything powder coated.

The items you see here are the belly pan lower mount, fork lower crown and another look at the swingarm.

Items were wire brushed, cleaned with petrol, dried and rubbed with wet and dry where needed. Primer is Halfords grey, paint is Halfords Satin Black and Halfords Platinum Silver (an MG colour).

With the swing arm I am not happy with the finish as you can see quite a bit of damage on it after the rust was removed. This item is heading went for powder coat Monday morning as the PC finish is thick and will cover the minor pitting in the metal.
