Bodywork mounted, painted, polish...

What do you think? After 14 years of not painting i think i didn't do a bad job. i didn't like the first spary gun i used so i bought a different one but oh well. It is a track bike, i still need to clean wheels and stuff. i'll take better pics 2morrow.

FP1

Nice paint scheme. From the pictures it looks good. In person????? I see that you have lots of swirl from polishing. I don't like to paint anything dark because of that.

yeah, i polished it but then when i mounted the bodywork my hands were dirty, it was too late to do a better clean up job but it should be easy to clean and wax.

DON'T WAX IT YET!
You need to wait at least 60 days for the paint to fully cure (gas off), otherwise you can trap air that needs to escape. Until then, you can polish but not wax.

Looks really nice. I like how you played the red in. Placed very nicely, just gives it an interesting little touch.

So, when do we get to see the bike upclose and in action?
