I'm so close to painting my silver parts flat black. The head light trim, rad shrouds and side covers. It will black out my 2010. What do you guys think and has anyone done this?
Sometimes it's the subtle touch that really makes the difference.I've done the rad shrouds so far, but will do the side covers at some point. Clean, rough up gently with emery cloth, clean again, dry, and then many thin coats of Krylon plastic.
I gave you full credit man. That was an inspirational bike indeed. You should have been on Kawa's design team for the V IMO. I still wish I had the silver tank to go with the black parts.cheers - first saw the V and thought crying out for bit more attitude.
Inspired couple of others too here apparently on the front end, do a search, think they wrote it up? (thumpers/cuff?) Anyway, ended u with acerbis supermoto. Mount high as possible and follow wheel contour to look right.
Glad we could show you guys a good time.cheers chaps, falttered like enough to want to do yourself. They should all come that way from the factory!
Trip to BC?, you've a good memorey cuff! - actually went really well given, logistics,/time limted, so didnt get across rockies but just Flew in to Vancouver from Vegas, few days there, then onto Whistler, got last weeknds great skiing, got bumped to a huge apartment, ditto rental car, did zip lining etc, Blessed with weather, everything fell into place, as it does when you dont plan. But stunning raods and scenery, like Scottish highlands on a bigger scale. People were nice too, Will defintely be back on a bike one day.
LOVE this paint. Nicely done. I have considered doing a similar re-work on my green bike, but with white paint. Now my little brain is racing!Picked up my new 07 and I went from this to that asap, way too silver! Side shrouds, enamel- semi sheen. no chips or cracks in 3 years.
