What to do to my tank?

So I powdercoated my rims to a green flake. Looking around for plastics to match. That's still in progress. But have to change my tank color too. Any suggestions on what and where to do with it? Thought of either paint or wrap. Any help appreciated.

find some plastics, then paint the tank to match. i wouldn't suggest you do anything to the tank now and have something totally different when you get the fairings.

Scootertrash will know better, but it might be easier to spray paint the tank. For powdercoating, I would imagine you need to remove pump/fittings etc., and get all the gasoline out of the tank before you can stick it in the oven.
