From Green to Yellow

Paint is done. The pics make it look really "bannana-yellow", but it is actually a nice deep, rich yellow. New decals and clear coat will be done today and I can pick up the parts tomorrow. Stoked.

You are my hero for doing this. If I could have picked a Versys in any color it would have been yellow. I hope it turns out better than the Versys in this thread

$750 sounds like a very reasonable price, its obviously not painted with rattle cans. By the time you figure about $200 for materials that leaves $550 for labor, 550 div by shop rate of $79/hr is only about 7 hrs labor.

I've heard quotes up to $1500

Just picked up the finished parts. Couldn't be happier with the color (or the price...$180 ,Friend owns a collision repair shop). Won't be able to put them back on the bike until next week or the following weekend, but here's a couple pics.

I love yellow.

I think I am going to turn the previous color of your bike when I see the results.
