This is for one of the members on another 109 board but wanted to show it off here. I just finished this up and wanted to hang it up and take some pictures. wait until you see this installed. I layed it out so the bottom looks slammed and standing still you would think it is taking off.

Look! No tank seam and this was a little more work than the vtx because of the side panels. Like always, I rolled it up and used very little filler. It looks like a stretched monster now.Â

There is a lot going on here. Kandy tangerine, 3 different graphics colors, marblizer, 2 different flakes and 2 different metalics. I know there are some guys saying they are doing refinish work and now painting bikes.

Trust me you will never get the results with ppg or dupont refinish paints that you get from using top of the line House of Kolors products. If you want it to look a foot deep you have to use paints that are designed for custom work and built to handle all of these graphics. The refinsh paint lines would never hold up to this kind of build up.

Lets just say I will work within in your budget and do as much as I can for you. There are so many variables depending on what finish you want and what the paints cost. Candies are obviously the holly grail of paint so not the cheapest. The tanks seam is $250 to remove and reseal the tank. Send me an email to [email protected] I am already way behind in getting back to people and that is the easiest way to keep track of our conversations.

This is one I did recently with my own receipe of burple and cobalt blue. The bike has so much on it you can't even see the graphics. I need to have him send me some close ups. I removed the tank seam and louvers in the fenders. There are some really cool graphics under all that chrome.

Looks awesome,The House of Color is in my neck of the wood.Amazing what comes out of this little town.
I was just down there last week going through their advanced certification. Very Very Hot! it was 107 in their paint booth. What a week just 2 of us one on one with the people who right the tech manual and come up with the killer paints. Had a great time working with the chrome paint, pearls, kandy and some very cool secretes.
