New paint needed.

I got my track body and looking for ideas about paint.
Nothing wild needed for it is just track body work. I'm thinking of going the complete opposite of factory colors (basically just painting the black yellow and visa versa.

Maybe something more simple like all black with yellow decals for I'm not repainting a good tank.

Factory paint


Race body primed and ready for color.

Awesome! I just think you should keep the stripe on the tank.

Seriously considering this.



Its a generic decal kit that I could trim to fit my bike and would work great on all black and not mess up my tank. And of course some a yellow mixed black SUZUKI decal for the bottom.

Just trying to keep it simple. One round of paint and some easy color splash.
If I can score a used tank. I would take a different approach with some slightly custom paint. You know I like race replicas.
Maybe like this?

I think all black... only keep the wheel stripes and the Suzuki S in yellow... but then you'd have to paint your tank...

I just think if your gonna do race plastic... why not give it a cool paint job? make it stand out?

hey that wouldn't be too bad there either. Should be too expensive for that! It's mainly all black with a few yellow accents. Plus you get to keep the yellow stripe on the tank.

Only other paint needed would be the white for the # plates and about a 1/2 a day at the vinyl shop.

Vinyl is cheaper and easier to change if I decide too.

you need to hook up with some people that paint. I find it best to swap out trades for that kinda thing.
