Just a note to let you know how happy I was with your products and service. Ordering and shipping were smooth as silk! Product was everything you claimed and more. Keep up the great work! Here are a few pics of the bike. I bought it used with some damage. Bought new (Maier) upper and side fairings (both sides)...used all the original rear plastic and tank cover, with all decals removed and prepped to paint. Primed and painted in the garage area of my apartment complex. Pics don't show it well, but the bike is actually 3 colors...The Autumn maple (maroon) on top, a GM "dark red", which looks dark purple to me directly below the maroon, and metallic black on the bottom 1/4 of the side pieces and the last 1/4 of the rear. Note that there are no hard lines in the paint work....all colors fade into each other. Trickiest part of the fading were the 3 intake holes on the front upper fairing.....done with a little masking tape and a really steady hand.....no masking tape on the rest of the fading. The decals were from you, and they were placed after an initial layer of clear coat; then wet sanded and clear coated with 2 additional layers. The large front graphics were hand-cut from red and silver bulk tape using a multi-layer masking tape template.....don't ask..... :) All in all, not too bad for my first try, eh?....oh....forgot to mention.....all done with Duplicolor touch up spray cans I got from Wal-Mart. I get a lot of drop-jaw stares - first when people see the paint work and then when they find out I did it.....then sheer disbelief that it was done with spray cans. But it wouldn't look anywhere near as nice without your graphics!
