i did the paint!!
man so stoked the way it turned out eh - i HAVE got 2 runs in the clear though :( :( one on the back/bottom of the headlight bucket (not visible on when mounted to bike) and one on the left hand side of the seat cowl - but once again, that will be covered by the seat pad...so I'm fair stoked. Considering this is the first time i have ever done this before - let alone a 4 stage paint process including pearl.
Pictures time -
So this was my backyard paint booth, covered all around and on the floor with tarps - air tight
The Tank, Cowl and headlight bucket painted - oh so damn pretty, in the light it POPS!
...and the tank with its clothes on!
and a group shot of the kit!
next - is frame work. I am going to build a seat pan, some mounts for my cafe seat and make a "fender eliminator" - basically some aluminium mounted on the frame - this will give me the "clean look" but at the same time, covering my engine and under my seat from the mud etc being flicked up from the road.
