there is a guy about an hour away from me that I went to see that as the equipment that does it.
$185.00 a square in and to do one color with clear coat and then any other color like my cobra strips in another color or any lettering or art work will be an extra $135.00 a square foot.
have no idea how much that will be need to measure the parts of my Rocket.
Do you think it will look good on my new custom tins on how my rocket looks like, or better off paint?

This is the color I’m thinking of with just black chrome stripes or just paint jet black or the silver chrome stripes or will it look better doing the silver chrome as body and the darker stripes?
Or just stick with doing paint?my bike just for those who has not seen it yet it’s coming along just trying to decide on paint before it’s finished.

I watched a great show on this a while back. Quite an amazing process. I didn't know it was so darn expensive, though.
Another idea I saw was this paint that changes color depending on how the sun hits it.
It was on a plane. Paint costs about $600 a quart or something like that.
