New paint! Woot woot!

soooooo the fairings are pretty much done and I wanted to share my progress with the group.

My back has been painted countless times. It's even had a 1000rr body on it for a few years. The OEM fairings were painted black, then digital camo, then rattle canned black.... Sooo to say they were in sub par condition is pretty accurate. Knowing I would have to do a good strip and paint everything again I decided to try something a little different. White and red!

The red was color matched to my other RC51 so it's pretty close, looks darker in the photos and there's no clear on it yet to make it POP! I also purchased one of the complete decal kits off eBay.... That was a f'ing nightmare. I messed up the tail so bad I decided to just paint all the black myself.... Minus a few small pieces. The lowest part of the wing is a sticker and the red/black on the upper is also a sticker... Everything else I taped off by hand and painted black.

All that's left is to add the RVT and 1000R on the tail then shoot some clear! Can't wait to have these in the bike!

And yes, the tank will be painted to match as well...

Looks good! I am going to have my track plastics painted in the '03 scheme. I have a local paint guy, who is trying to get his name out there, that offered to paint them for nothing but advertisement provided I buy the paint. I've seen some of his work so I'm willing to let him have at it.
