The base paint was a mid-gray. The shop at Konquer had shown me a Harley part that was a darker gray base and it was very hard to see the carbon fibre effect, which I explained to the girl at the hydrographics shop was NOT what I wanted. She suggested the lighter gray base and I am very happy with how they turned out. The only part not on display is the horn cover which I have already installed. The surface finish of the parts is like glass, really sweet. The airbrush guy is suggesting stuff almost every business day and we’ve agreed on the tank and rear fender paint scheme.

    Ruddy CHAV!. And don't come crying to us when the driver says SMIDSY.

    Years ago I saw a really smart Camo Hydrodipped bike - Base colour was silver with RealTree camo. It was truly very neat.
