    what to do with an unpainted chainstay

    Hi all,
    I just got my first banshee frame, a new RUNE V1

    the paint scheme is white, but the right chainstay is bare aluminum. I found I am not unique, but what do you guys do (did) with it?
    leave it bare is not the best idea, but wrapping it up in some kind of tape won't trap water inside?

    I was thinking of a layer of lacquer, what do say?

    on another thing, is there a way to figure out the year of production?serial number perhaps?

    Thanks,
    Avi

    Thank you amrayo.

    If I can ask another thing I am now stuck with, literally. I have taken apart all the pivots to regrease the bushings after all the years it spent sitting in the shop. The problem is that the upper pivot (rocker pivot) won't budge. It seems hard pressed to the rocker opposite its head (screw side). Is it threaded ? And if so which direction?

    Thanks again,
    Avi
