So I'm looking to paint my gas tank and I was scanning ebay for another cheap crappy tank that I could put on while I paint mine. I commute everyday on my bike, my only transportation and I'm not sure of the snags I'm going to hit while attempting to paint.

I was wondering is there a tank that I could find that would work with my 03 SV650?

I saw a 02 tank for like 20 bucks, could this work?

the PO put a "hickie"(what he called it) on the top left of the tank which removed the paint in the shape of a hickie, it now has a layer of rust where paint used to be. I was looking to repaint the entire tank since it is copper and people are saying that it's hard to match.

I see.

Yeah, repairing it wouldn't be that hard, but your right, the paint could be hard to match. I thought there was some info on this site with the correct paint codes though.

Good Luck Man

i just got a lot of my fairings parts painted the 03 Copper ( I too had a 03 copper) and the painter did an excellent job of blending all the colors in, i couldn't even tell where the touch up spots were!

the trick is supposedly getting water based paint custom mixed for yah
