Prepping the tank for painting end of the week, low 80's so perfect temp. Lining the tank today, Caswell has always worked well for me.
One thing nice about a fiberglass tank is no rust or dents, just a few spots that need to be filled.

Did some side cover repair, covers are plastic, fiberglass worked well for the fix.

Thanks Kenny,
I must have gotten some good karma, paint came out good. A couple small runs, but I'm not entering the bike in the Quail Motorcycle Gathering, so I'm ok with it. Plus in only cost me about $100, I painted with Preval and shot clear with my Harbor Freight gun. I forgot how slow it is painting with Preval, but it works good, I feel shooting clear you need a gun, puts out more.. The other alternative is 2K clear, thats real convenient, but I have a gun so used it.



Thanks Mark

This rendition is great too, Stevie Ray and Albert King. Albert king played left handed but the guitar was strung for a right handed guitar.
In other words the high strings were on the top.

Got side covers done, I had to match the yellow gas tank decal. With paint that never got used for my yellow MX250 and some leftover red from a project, I got the color real close.
Plus I had to freehand the yellow and trim with black pin stripe tape. The original pin stripe and yellow on the tank were hand painted.
