And so it begins....

I purchased my 954 about 3 weeks ago. I love everything about it. But, I never liked the way it looked without the OEM decals. I ordered a set of OEM decals, and after debating I decided I want a whole color change. My wife works at a autobody shop so I got a hookup. The plastics and tank are going to painted during the week. Hopefully I'll have the bike together again next weekend. My color choice is classy. My goal is to have a different enough color, but still look like it could have come from Honda like that. I also got some other OEM style decals to go on....I can't wait.

Nice bike. Jake worked on it last week at the shop and joked about not wanting to return from the test drive afterwards

Got the paint today....hopefully it'll get prepped for paint tomorrow. I'll say this, the paint is from a late model Lexus.

I plan on polishing the lips, and leaving the spokes black. I'd like to swap in RC51 5 spoke wheels....

Trust me, I'm as anxious as you guys are to see it finished.

OK, so I got the parts back, late in the day yesterday. Here are some rough pics. I painted it Lexus Starfire Pearl(same as late model GS's, IS's, and LS's)

I'll get it all cleaned up and ready for some better pics during the week. I'm so happy to have my baby back.....
