Nice pics James. Now let's hope I can finish working with the tail section and get it to look half as decent as the rest of the bodywork.

Patrick, I haven't tried what you said just yet but I will be working on your technique tomorrow. Thanks for the tip.


BlackWidow... Thanks. I like it a lot. James had an enormous role in how it turned out. Thanks to him also. Neither one of us knew what we we're doing when we started on this project. We're pleased with the results however, considering.

UPDATE...

I blacked out the white pin-striping on the side of the upper fairings. I think it looks even better now.

We are really stressing this.. Theres a first time for everything, these were absolute TRASH when he got them! there are a lot of chips in the original finish that we didn't take the time to fill in, so please keep this in mind while checkin out the final finish.

We were more worried about making the needed repairs than we were about all the little chips and small minor cracks here and there, you really needed to have seen it before we started working with it. I think it came out pretty good for two ignorant rookies, all things considered. We learned alot a little too late in the game. Thanks to vfracer-r and houseofpain for all the tips tricks and help

So, what do you guys think....should I add decals to the bodywork to give it more of a racebike look, or leave it the way it is?
