My latest paint project

Well here are some pics of my latest bike painting project, a 2006 RC51. This is the 5th bike I've done, I think I like the color on this one the best so far, its a metallic black with white number plates. I'll have some better pics of this weekend from VIR. I didnt get to finish the polishing but came out pretty good with how much work it took. The body work is Tromex, which has been pretty good in the past but this set had quite a few pitts and scratches so between all the patching, wetsanding, priming, wetsanding, painting, wetsanding, painting, wetsanding, clearcoat it came out pretty well.

Nice work Pippi. Twisty is a lucky guy to have you painting his race bikes. Nice dog too. He didnt look very excited to be in the one picture.

Oops, sorry about that. More of a general paint topic then a Honda topic I thought.

No biggie... just didn't want it barried in Off Topic... with all the junk in there. The thread is worth more than that.
