Really, really like what you've done. Details on the colored panels?

It's actually citrus green. I had a coworker take the pics. I think his phone makes it look yellow. It looks closer to high-vis green in real life. I took the panels off and spray painted them.

Hard to tell you spray painted them. Rattle can or with a gun in a booth?

Either way, nice job.

I removed the panels, sanded them to bare plastic, sprayed them with adhesion promoter and sprayed them with Rustoleum Universal. The other bike I used 2 base coats and 3 clear coats, because I polished out the orange peel. This bike I used 2 base coats and 2 clear coats and I didn't polish out the orange peel.
If not for this paint and my YouTube spray paint doctorate, I wouldn't have done it.

Don't understand going to all the trouble and not sanding it out to get a nice finish. With orange peel they look like home paint jobs, IMHO.
What an extra few hours? Bit I am a perfectionist, do it right or don't bother.

Dude, this is the type of thing you think in your head, no need to post this and piss on someone else's parade! Who cares if he didn't sand it? He did what he wanted and it looks nice, he's getting compliments and he likes how it turned out.

Do it right or don't bother? Jesus.

Nice job! Hard to tell it was not done in a booth by a professional, very impressive but you do have a doctorate from YouTube...

One of my BV's is my commuter. The other is the bike that is important and has a lot of custom work. Notice how I polished it. Oh by the way, it was a home job Razz emoticon

I love the red on your BV350. I went into the dealership planning to buy a red BV and after looking at the dragon red available decided I didn't like that color of red and bought a while BV350 instead. If the red from GTS becomes available for the BV350 I will trade my in.

+1 and Amen, brother JP.

JP- reminds me of the saying - "Before you speak, ask yourself if what you're about to say will improve upon the silence."

WEB, ... pay attention and read his post. He is aware of what he did and also what he didn't do. It was a choice. It still came out great.
