The engine is all painted and I'm well happy. I masked off the bare aluminium surfaces, which will be polished and lacquered in due course. As I live in the UK I intend to use Wemoto and Fowlers for my clutch, gaskets, and seals etc.
I won't be describing an in depth rebuild of the engine. I must refer you to an excellent indepth two part YouTube tutorial Dream Warrior called 'VMAX 1200 assembly 1 and part 2'
