Small paint job
« on: December 24, 2018, 02:28:32 PM »
Had a few days with no Sea Time, so decided to spray the plain black belly pan & the front fender. I think it looks better. But then I am biased...... :002:

very nice Bree, do you know what the paint code was you got, and where you got it from? did some company match the colour for you ?  I've got a few small chip I want to get touched up,  might get the belly pan done at the same time that looks really nice pal
proper preparation prevents piss poor performance

I got the paint from RS Bike paints ( Aerosol ). I was  not a great fan of RS as I had some issues in the past. But I decided to give them one more try, and this is the result.. There is an, extremely slight difference in the shade but only to be expected with Aerosols. Hope that helps, if you go onto their website look for the bike model and year and it gives you the correct paint.....

Excellent job.  :020:  :047: Red is awesome on this bike and I'm certain it makes the bike faster.  :305:  Where did you get the extra decals?  Nice touch.  Thanks for sharing.
