    Tank decals - what do you think?

    When I painted my bike I put some black "wings" on the tank. It's a few years on now and they were looking a bit tatty. I had a problem with petrol-resistant lacquer going nasty.
    I've resprayed the affected and put these embossed wings on this week. They're smaller than the old ones but look pretty good in my opinion.

    After seeing a few bikes today I noticed the honda wing I have was from a recent CB1000, and the embossed CBR is from a fireblade?

    Really nice, I like that,
    do you lacquer over them or mask them before spraying?
    Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I.

    I'll be using a catalyzed clearcoat on mine.

    I've been replacing the old vinyl stripes this week and finished today. I didn't fancy taking the nose and tank off again so those were painted in-place with a LOT of masking tape and paper. I've got a carbon-fibre tank protector on order too but it's 3 days overdue already.
