Re: Lots of pictures of my hard worK.

Beautiful. I actually thought about painting mine that color. I used to have a helmet painted that color and I got so many compliments on it. May I suggest removing the frame sticker?

I like it! How much time did you put into it- did you do the painting/work yourself?

Nice work! I think the side panel should be regular black, without the smog cannister bulge.Great color combo, black and green! ;D

Re: Lots of pictures of my hard worK.

POW!!! what a color!

may i suggest pulling the exhaust headers off for a polishing? it's not too difficult, honestly. get a scotchbrite pad and scrub off the bronzy colored coating, and then use a metal polish to make it go "BLING!"...

I had a place named Europa autobody in Portland OR do the the paint. It has a gold metalic in it that gives a yellowish color in the right light. All other mods add up to about 30 hours more or less and a good chuck of change. I don't really pay attention to the time it takes. Some things like the pipe I could have done a better job on, but the directions I was following were not right for 2002 and it was more experimentation process. Of course this could be fixed, but I don't feel like bothering since I think they look fine.

I may have to make that a future mod. Any pictures of what it would look like?
