Front forks painting

At first sight I realised that the main thing is to paint some parts of the bike.

Forks are dirty and has lot of scratches. Brake disk cover holder is broken. I have to cut and grind it.
Forks was on a bike. I removed an old paint with Nitro Mors Paint & Varnish Remover bought in Halfords for £6.79. It did its job perfectly!
Then I used a 240 grid sand paper. Next was 400 and last one was 800. Surface was smooth and shiny. It is aluminium and I know that I should not paint it with ferrous metal paint but I did it.
2 coats of grey primer, 2 coats of Nissan Silver paint and 2 coats of clear laquer to finish it :)
Look at the difference!!!!
