Last couple days were perfect temperatures for painting so I decided to take advantage of the nice weather.
I started (re)painting Joey's K3 CB750 tank and finished up Tommy's XS650 motor. Here's a couple teaser shots:
|First coat of metallic cast iron went on really thick (and kind of runny). |
I'll be sanding it all even before the second coat.
|The paint area as it sits currently.|
That's the XS650 left engine cover in the way back there.
|Decals for the fuel tank and sidecovers. |
I'm still considering something else instead.
|Oh yeah, they're REFLECTIVE vinyl. Pretty cool right?|
|Custom mixed a gold/bronze-ish metallic |
engine enamel for the YAMAHA inlay.
|It's really hard to properly photograph the metallic paint. |
So here's some more pics.
|It looks slightly more gold in person.|
|This is the side engine cover before.|
It's funny how just a slight difference can really make the motor pop.
