Here are some pics of my project the past 2 weekends..

Start with as much disassembly as you can handle....

Labeled all the nuts and bolts

Cleaned up the welds:

Sand down everyting with Scotch brite sanding pads and 400 grit, then prime away

Now for some color......

The flash throws it off, but its Metallic red..... :usa:

NOw for the plastics.....


I USED to have this cheap fake carbon fiber on some of the tubes:

Thanks for the kind words.
The painting part was pretty straight forward.
The CF wrap was very time consuming!
Almost 2 hours to do one side panel.. :shock:
I've used 3 diffrent kinds of CF film before, and this was by far the best quality and very stiff and durrable.
But put some heat on it and it turns to plastic wrap
...for a few seconds

Heres the rear flap before install.

FYI
I didnt paint the down tubes, just used some of my OLD CF wrap (that really doenst look like CF wrap) to disguise that I didnt paint those parts


And thanks fpr the "members ride" move...I never thought of that :ucrazy:

stupid me!
