Actually, there were plenty of problems getting the paint to stick before and after scrubbing the tanks, and also with the paint going on smoothly to the carbon fiber bits. I think we got it sorted, though. We've had fuel in the tanks for a few weeks since the initial white base coat without bubbling problems. Our experience is that good quality paint on plastic tanks will last OK. Stickers never last long on plastic tanks.
I've sent photos to JVO and they plan to put them up (with mention of Neil and his attempt on the Sertoes) on the JVO website.
Molly the pitbull will keep an eye on the bike until it gets shipped on about the 12th. Those of you who know Molly will understand what a threat this is!
