Thank you all for your kind words.  8)

Unfortunately, just when i have put the gloss coat on the covers and the tank, i have crashed during one of my trackdays. As a result - broken collar bone, surgeries and therapies in the last year. As if it wasn't enough, had to fix my main bike due to crash.


Honda on the other hand, is where I left it a year ago. With the addition of the gloss coat. Now it needs polishing and second layer of clear gloss.








I hope this project will pick up from now on, but I cannot make any promises  ;D

Stay tuned,
Kristijan

Sorry about the get-off. Work on the 400 can be great therapy!

Yeah, I think that work on the 400 will be excellent therapy.   ;D

Paintwork looks good, but it's still not finished and the shine is not on the level I want.

Wet sanding, and additional layers of clear should resolve that issue. And in the end, final polishing.

We'll see.  :o
