I did the blacked out engine last spring, and like you it took a few nights after work to get to done, and a lot of hours filing,sanding, polishing...etc. I had never even taken my tank off and dove right in head first. I also added my exhaust at the same time. It felt good to do the work myself and has given me a little more confidence to do other things. Now If I could get up the nerve to remove my wheels and paint them...oh well, one thing at a time.

Hey blue, is that a Kuryakyn case cover on your bike? If so, how do you like it, and how is the quality?

Man those wheels look like crap. Box them up, ship them to me and I will properly dispose of them for you. I will send you my spokes to use till you can find suitable replacements.

The scoot looks great and cool photos.

Here is mine, I will never do this again.....

My suggestion for anyone else, if you do this spend a few bucks on a good air brush, best way to paint in between the fins and not over load the paint! Also, I would not use High Heat engine paint again nor DupliColor! Their paint can suck and the VTX does not get that hot!
