My new paintwork

Post by Guest on Tue 02 Mar 2010, 18:17

Picked up my plastics and tank this afternoon. Well pleased with it A lovely metallic grey/gunmetal colour. Thing is I never thought about decals or pinstriping for it . Can anybody photoshop some ideas for me? Here's a few pix before I fit em to the bike.

The fairing takes a Gilera Runner light unit mate 50/55W Halogens. Adequate , but I also have two 55watt Projectors to fit somewhere. Think I'll leave decals for a while, but the paint looks relly nice in the sunlight. Will get it bolted up and post pix at weekend.

When I get some more dosh I plan to have a chat with Fringe about a seat design. The paint was done by a mate that works at a car repair place in Eastbourne. they have 4 heated booths and it cost 150 for fairing , tank, tail plastics and rear seat cover. Thought that was really good value? Would appreciate your thoughts Griz when I get it bolted together? does it need any more?

Well it sure looks like they did a top quality job to me & 150 is a great price me thinks!

Bolt it all on & post up the pics, as for needing anymore, I think it all comes down to personal taste.

Since doing the punisher I keep thinking of different themed bikes (a bit like american chopper! rofl) How about thinking of a name or theme for the bike? I went to my local vinyl print shop & asked if they could print me some designs I found online & they did a great job of it, I just sat on google images trying to find imagies relating to the punisher theme & saved them to my pictures on my computer & then emailed them to the printers & got them to resize them to my spec & choose the colour I most liked, they can also reproduce the image exactly as I found it online but the quality isn't as good as when they print using there own font etc.

I may stick with my wide, high Gold Renthals mate. Need em high and got angled risers. It all helps my bad back and knees. Could do with being wider as I have some nice grey mirrors to fit instead of my bar end ones!

Though I'd mock up the bike with the newly painted bodywork. Would appreciate good and bad comments. I will be covering the blue hoses, turquoise shock spring and possibly replace the bars.




Hoping to get some outdoor pix tomorrow and hopefully some sunshine to show off the paint.
