Hi all,

As I can see, photobucket images are not visible any more... Hope I'll be able to recreate them in the future. In the meanwhile, I'll host pictures from Google Photos, so please let me know if there will be any problems with the display of the photos. TIA.

I have been working on my bike lately... Mostly, I've prepared and painted the tank and side covers. Marks were painted instead of the decals...

Here are few pictures of the process.

Preparation : putty and filler after several layers with sanding in between.



Painted red.



Added masks and painted the side marks on the covers.








This is what it looks now vs how it looked like before....  :)



Added gold for Honda outline.





Masked and painted inner section with blue.



Result:



I have masked inner section now and sand it gently with 4000.





Masks off...







Final result:



That's about it, now onto final gloss coat, with sanding and polishing over the painted marks to even the finish.

Stay tuned,

Kristijan

I can't wait to see it under some clear-coat! That looks phenomenal!

Awesome job on the paint! When you bury that in Clear it will be amazing.

Awesome!
Nice to see someone go to the full effort instead of throwing on some vinyl and calling it a day

Thank you all on kind words.  8)

Next onto clear cote and polishing, so I can call it a day and proceed to front forks and instruments rebuild.

Regards,

Kristijan
