New paint for the V

well, three days ago i tipped my bike over, in the drivway, and i wasnt even sitting on it. (idiot) i ended up scratching and craking to right side plastic fairings. So what sould i do? luckly i took 3 years of autobody school during my highschool years, so i called my teacher up and sure enough, "Bring it in!" . Today i got all the pieces fixed, and all the gray plastic will be black with Dupont Chromaone with a small amount of flatener added. I had to match a formula for the red because kawasaki does not have an actual paint code for the bike! (wich i have if for some reason anyone needs the color). I should have known i cant just go in there and paint red. Like what happend to my camaro, wich ended up covered in plames and stripes. My old teacher busts out the airbrush, and i started painting flames and what not. So the entire bike will hopefully be on fire by tomorrow evening, I will try and get pics up this weekend if anyone is interested

Flames on a V! Hot! I was tossing around the idea of silver tribal flames for my candy blue V but didn't have the guts to try it. But I'm not gonna drop my bike just for an excuse. You must post finished pics!

Today i finished the front fender, and started around the headlight, i plan on going down the fairings and back to the front of the seat, and then just a few little guys on those side pieces, then i was contemplating throwing some orange pearl in some colorblender ( a pre-clearcoat) and running over the whole bike to make it sort of candy. who knows. I spent all morning practicing so it seems it would be an act of god to shoot clear tomorrow so this may be a monday thing, hold tight guys!

I don't normally like the flame look on a bike. Unless it's done really well it can come out pretty cheesy. With that said, yours is really, really well done. I like it a lot. It looks very natural instead of the cliche cartoonish type flames that are often done.

No offense to anyone with the other kind of flames, of course. Just not my cup of tea.
