Gauge, Fork and Wheel Paint Project Recap

Hey guys,

I received some questions about the projects I completed this year, so here is a little photo consolidation for your viewing pleasure.

Next, I am thinking of doing an exhaust mod which would include wrapping the pipes in black heat wrap; what do you think?

I really like the black look over the chrome.

I think black heat wrap on the pipes would look pretty good

I'm curious as to how much tape you need to wrap just the head pipes?

I just bought some to do mine. It came in a 1 inch by 50 foot roll and the package says it takes 1 roll to do a motorcycle. Looks like oglejust used 2 inch wide wrap. If so you may only need 25 feet. It's not cheap - it's like $40 a roll.

I like the shocks! I'd like to see a picture of the shocks with more of the bike in the shot. What did it take to paint the shocks (as in - what would it take ME to do the same)?
