New Paint

I just got the new paint shot on my buddies '86. I think it turned out pretty well, but let me know what you think. I'll be buffing today and hopefully have it reassembled over the next week. I'll post more pics as the project project progresses.

Talking Love it!

I really like the color scheme! I'd do reverse on mine, more black than gray. Nice job!

Thanks for the compliments. I worked in a body shop for about four years in the early 1980's, so I have a basic understanding of paint and body. Now I just do this in my garage as a hobby.

It went back together faster than I thought, so I have some pictures of the final result.

Hey stereopath. Funny you should mention the reverse. I shot my brother's Warrior black with grey stripes earlier this year. Both look good, but I think I prefer the grey.
