Thumbs up Finally Finished My Paint Job..

So i Finally repaired, bondo'ed, and sanded up my bike after a little accident bike in Cali and repainted her all white. Guy at the shop took forever to do it so i picked the bike up and brought it home to do all the work myself, had it done in 2 weeks, I used Dupli-Color Acrylic Lacquer White and then Clear. While i was at it i changed the rim stripes to red and changed my first rear tire as well, not bad. Check it out, let me know what you guys think!

Am also going with a All White with a Red theme on the bike so i still have to add red levers, grips and anything else i can replace to red. Also have the flushmounts on the way.

Looks great! So clean. Gets some decals on her and she'll look even better.

Looks nice man! Where did you buy your paint, and how much prep work did you have to do?

Thanks guys!! helluva project but well worth it..

..as for the paint i just went down to advance auto parts and bought the dupli-color brand. For the prep work i first had to fix the cracks and 2 inch dent on the gas tank with bondo, from there it was just sanding down (80-100 grit sandpaper on the damaged areas, 150 on the good areas, 400 on the primer, then 1500-2000 on the clear coat, followed by rubbing compound). Here's some pics of the prep work;
