My project is going to be started tomorrow in the morning as I get the proper
tools, numerous rattle cans, and clear coat as well. They will come in sum of hefty process of pictures. I don't have batteries at the moment, but will get one along the way.. I do not have photoshop, so I'm resorting for the primitive microsoft paint. IT is lazy quickie of what my 250 projected to look like this. I will take pictures of my ruined fairings before I start sand and paint tomorrow.
I expect the fairings to be back on by monday/tuesday



Heres the sneak preview.

Cool beans. Are you doing metallic paints or pearl with the white?

Edit: I just re-read that. You're using rattle can paints? If you're going through the effort to sand and prep the plastics why not drop a couple hundred bucks and have someone spray it? I understand you're wanting to stay on the cheap and all... But I'm afraid it's going to look 'off'. The black should come out fine, but the transitions might be weird. Are you sanding EVERYTHING down even the green?

Cool idea...but I think you should do it in straight line instread of the whole piece like that...Look at the Ducati Desmo.

Here is a sweet paint scheme I just found that you could try out. I think I looks pretty sweet and better than painting each faring a different color.

Yeahhhh...with rattlecans. That's it. That's EXACTLY what he'll do. :Laughing rolling:I have an idea, why doesn't he just rattlecan the damn Sistine Chapel onto his fairings while he's at it? That should be equally as plausible...:D

Maybe after showing him a halfway decent paint scheme along the lines of his idea he would opt out of a crappy paint scheme that might turn out poorly from using rattle cans??? I think his scheme doesnt look very good, especially if the rattle cans dont go so well. Trying to save money is good and all, but if it doesnt turn out well new farings will cost more than a paint job.

Well if it doesn't turn out well you can just scuff and respray, man, it doesn't magically ruin the fairings. Plus, did you miss the part where he wrecked, and is sanding and repainting his wrecked fairings? So it's not going to look all that cherry even WITH a good paint job. :dunno:
