LukasM, the whole setup with all the spares I am taking, tyres, mousses the tooty came to around USD18K
Cummo, we had fuel in the tanks for a few weeks before painting. The rear tank was a major problem, because it was'nt washed before the base coat and the paint wouldnt stick (check earlier build pics). We think this was because of the original anti-stick stuff they put in the mould. Once it was washed, there was no problem.
It'll be interesting to see how it lasts with the 25% ethanol fuel we will be using in Brazil. Ask me again in September.
