Help Choosing Color

Photobucket

With the first really crappy weekend weather I'm finally getting to my paint the tank (or all of bike) project. I can't decide between painting the tank the color of original, 30 year anniversary (Alpine White), or something else. My girlfriend wants red, I'm undecided. The seat is being rebuilt in January so I can choose the color to something other than red if I want. Ideas?

I like to have a decent place to build a paint booth in my rental townhouse. I have an HVLP paint sprayer, air supplied respirator, IR curing lamps, and a CAD vinyl cutter for paint stencils. No shop es no bueno!

red Plastic-uip F800GS

Hi Guys, here is my 2008 F800-GS plasti-dipped. 3 cans of red and a can of Glossifier. The glossifier made a big difference, it looks much better with that on. I have included a picture of the red without gloss. I originally left the shrouds grey but looks better with them done. Also learned that you have to remove the masking take as soon as you have sprayed, or else it takes the coating with it. So have to mask every coat. Also, be careful when screwing on the panels, the screws can lift the coating around the hole.
Happy with overall effect. I sprayed over the BMW badge and it was dead easy to peel it off the badge afterwards. So, what do you think? (Yes,there is a small panel missing in 1 pic. I have put it back.)
