Nice project. I love to see all the step by step progress.

That paint booth is a nice set up.

Last Sunday we (or Mike ) changed spark plugs, ram air tubes, clutch cable and bleed the brakes.
I'm going to get a new set of rubbers, brake pads, body back and Boo Boo's ready to play!

Nice work. I just took my plastics off to fix my rash from MSRH last year.
Thats a neat set-up for the spraybooth.
I have to do a little fiberglass work and a lot of prep work. I am going for a real clean, smooth as glass finish. Mines not a track exclusive bike so its gotta look good for the street too. hehehe

[QUOTE=04RSVR]Here is my paint booth. I designed it so I could fold it up against the wall. [COLOR="Red"]When folded it sticks out about 4 inches


How far does it stick out when not folded?
Don't lie we can tell if you do! }

I'm sorry Mike I'm in a silly mood. I appreciate the pics and info as I am also deep into fiberglass repairs to my GSXR fairings.
'Bout sick of it too.

ALMOST DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, after waaaaay too long, here are the painted items!!!
Nut decided today she wanted number plates so they will go on tomorrow.
This is only my second time painting so be easy on me. It's also only my third time doing repair and fabrication, these needed a lot of that. I tried spraying urethane (sp?) paint this time just to see how it went. I'm please with the product and as long as Nut is happy with it then I did my job. If anyone else wants some charity spraying done, let me know. You buy the supplies and the labor is CHEAP!

So it all began...

So it all began...

a bit hazy in the booth
So it all began...
