UPDATE -done paiting the track bodywork - UPDATE What do you think

Ok, it turned out not as good as i expected if you look at the color closely but after 14 years i am satisfied. it is a track bike anyway. Clearcoated and polish. Still need to clean wheels and stuff.

FP1

well, i used PPG, however i didn't use the top end since it was going to be around 180, so I used their cheap version so lets see how long it lasts. It cost me 60 bucks for the three colors and i still have plenty of it. Yes, the bodywork was nice however i didn't like a few things and i scratched a few places when fitting, specially tank and tail, so i did sand, fixed using glaze then primed again and painted. I am waiting for the Fiber Glass repair class the swift is putting together with Tom.

i think it looks great, may i suggest some RED pinstriping to seperate the black and grey, i think it would really set it off good.

I like it
Did you spray it yourself?
How much of the do you have left :icon_bigg

As for the fiberglass class with Tom, I'd like to schedule with him sometime after Thanksgiving. I'd really like to wait until after the MSRH T-D on 12-9. And James, I don't think Tom would mind you joining in.
Once we set a date I'll start a new thread to establish a list of people interested and see how many he can accomidate.
