Hello everyone! I'm finally ready to share what I've been working on since August! My brother owns a 2008 CBR 1000rr. The previous owner gave him and extra set of plastics, and they were painted with a nasty red paint.
I sanded and primed all of the pieces. This was all rattle can paint, Rustoleum American Accents was what I went with. Went on a lot smoother than the Krylon I first started with. Cans were cheap at Walmart. I used only the Satin finish, because Gloss is not good for multiple coats.
The side fairings need to be touched up. (Black over spray on the lightning bolts!) I thought I was careful when I was masking them! Could of been worse, but it will be a little bit more time until I'm finished. Then I will have to buff them all out. The gloss clear coat alone leaves a slight orange peel texture, plus over spray happens on larger pieces.
looks good. do you have finished photos with the pieces installed?
Unfortunately my brother hasn't mounted them on his bike yet. He has a bunch of work he needs to do on the bike. I'm anxious to see what they will look like. I will definitely post when he gets them on there!
