    Can't see them either
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Hello fellow figher pilots! Good news and bad... First the bad. Second painter ruined the clear paint job on the Beetle bags, nose fairing, tail section & front fender! U can image I was pissed! Didn't charge me and had to find another paint shop! 3wks lost with that, that... #$&@($!_*&!($_!!!!. Good news! Finished Givi set and top case turned out really good! And will save that for last along with the gas tank. Will be posting other completed works. Posted completed side cases...
    And be responsibly crazy!!!

    I did wonder why things had gone quiet. How jolly annoying re 1st painter! How'd they mess up exactly? I'm facing respray of my beetle bags and smuggler seat so if there's a lesson here I'd be keen to avoid any pitfalls.

    Cases looking gr8. Got any shots with lights blazing?

    That a shiny new avatar too?

    Well he was actually my second painter... The first painter is VERY good! But Gawd awful slow! The second painter came recommended by a fellow employee. That painter is pure garbage plain and simple AND I PLAN ON PASSING THE "WORD" AROUND... 3 wks LOST!!!! i&^$#@!&$#&^$#o*!#!

    You should be fine Malo! My Beetle bags just needed a coat of clear!!! and he mucked it up! For example, he painted the nose then dropped it!!!! DROPPED IT!!!!!!! Your painter should prime it first then sand then paint... In that order!

    Thanks! Found this kool avatar as part of some ol competition for cbr1100xx logo! This one I believe was in top 3!

    No light blazing for now... BUT will "showcase" them at the very end... Thinking about making a short video! My bro is keen on helpin!

    Thanks Malo! The cases came out really well! I'm pleased! And top case looks really good too! Will post at end of makeover...

    Hello Fellow fighter pilots! The New Monster project is almost complete! At 70%. Now just dealing with electrical connections for undertail kit, Givi set and to be displayed much later due to horrible paint job, Beetle bags and some minor tweaking of side panels. Stay tuned!!! Will display a few more pics. then the complete package and maybe a video. LOOKING SWEET!

    As loving stated unless you can get the same material as the factory. You'll have to prime and repaint. There's just to high a chance of a reaction between the 2. Most sealers are opaque so trying to use them doesn't work as well. Another way would be to do a test shot on a hidden area and see what happens. Give it 24 hours if nothing peels lifts crazed or wrinkled you should be safe. And make part of that test out in the sunlight. A little heat can make things go crazy.
    And
    Picked up a factory front nose and windscreen for 85.00. Plan to use it for a template and start getting my fiberglass bodywork prepped for paint and emblems. Then I'll paint the new piece in the 2003 factory black and get it sent out to my youngest to replace his cracked one.
