Do your studies, take your time, and rattle-can paint it. Lots here have done it, and if you do it by the book, with top quality materials, you can get upwards of 90% paint shop quality.

Man I was just thinking about your paintjob this week; still happy with it? That silver looks good, and it's a tough one to lay down.
It still looks great. Yes, the silver was a challenge. But like Salty pointed out, decent paint, and more importantly, Spray Max 2k clear makes all the difference. And doing the body work was a learning experience, but it worked out with surprisingly good results.

Thanks bud. An old fart of a bike for an old fart of a rider. I'm enjoying her to no end. And thanks in large part to the SVR braintrust, she purrs.
