    Default F to N Conversion Update

    Just got done spraying the 2nd coat of clear.
    I want to wet sand it and put a couple more coats of clear then sand and buff.

    How long does it need to cure before I wet sand it?

    It looks great. Are you going to do the license plate relocation ?

    Are you talking about like this? If so, I will eventually but not right now.
    If not I would really like to see what you mean.

    What do you think. It was raining so I couldn't get it out and give the whole thing a bath.
    Still waiting on the Rest of the backrest to come in.

    Yes, that is the modification that I was talking about. I used a Radiantz plate frame as it has an LED light built in. Lights up the road behind you so that you can be seen.

    I would agree... I used the top one... Painted it to match my fender cuz it stuck out like a sore thumb. I "created" the second one by using flex strips on the side of my frame. I would use the second one if I had to do it again.

    I really like the looks of that. Only problem is that mine is not going to be frenched. At least not anytime soon.

    That is the reason I was thinking about something like this with Led lighting.

    If no French, I would say get the one you posted. Anything is better than the stock mess Honda puts on these things.
