Tank Paint Job (finally) Empty Tank Paint Job (finally)

I've waited a while for it but finally had the tank on my blade resprayed. It'd been bugging me for a while, the previous owner scratched the tank and decided to fit a massive tank pad after the event to try and cover the damage. they also made sure it was securely attached using silicon and superglue, it was a right mess and depressed me everytime I looked at her, but now....

To say I'm impressed with the finish is an understatement, it looks f#cking awesome

Cheers Nick would have liked you to do it having seen your work but I know you had a thousand things going on and weren't ready to start spraying. I took a punt with a friend of a friend and it turned out fantastic. He's a frustrated ex racer who now only gets to play repair other people's bikes and it appears he has big plans for mine, watch this space!!
