I paid $250 to have everything from the Tank back painted. (Tank, Rear fairing, rear seat cowl, rear under fairing). Met a guy that works at a body shop and he just happen to be painting a mercedes the same color so he hung mine up and shot it while he was at it. Did all the prep work as well!

Got about 500 invested so far, still need to buy clear coat and buffing supplies. Oh and like two months of prep, prime, sand, fill, sand, prime, sand, prime, sand, prime. Once the clear shows up I can start shooting color (after another sanding). Or save yourself alot of elbow grease and spend the money (upwards of a grand or more) and get it done right. A $300 Macco special is exactly what there motto says..."uh oh..."
