Powdercoating that is!

Just got some pieces done by fellow member "Jay V" (whom I've thanked a ton already) of off an indirect recommendation of another forum member.

Tried my best to take pics that would show off the workmanship, hope this comes out better than it does on my monitor:







Notice how the areas of movement were masked off and how he replaced the weird spacer in the shifter joint and the rubber grommets behind the rearset plate (ah, didn't take a pic of the backside, but they are there). That's great service in my book.

He did a great job and did quality work for an affordable price. If PC shops are hard to find in your area (or are charging too much), I *highly* recommend Jay Vergenz's work. Look him up!

I'd love to tell you but I think you should ask him directly, just send a PM to him. I will say that after checking out the prices from the few shops around me, I was just going to rattle can it myself... but luckily I caught him and at his prices it was really a no brainer (savings of time, labor, impending aggravation of hand sanding, prepping, multiple coats of paint, etc). Hey, he might even give you better prices than what he gave me haha.

Thanks Phil - appreciate it!

Just a note - the white specs on some of the parts are just dust from the packing materials.

Ah yes... it was late and I forgot to mention that. The paint job itself is a smooth satin, the white specs are remnants of the packing material (which was wrapped in foam AND bubble wrap ... another quality of great service.

I've been a fan of Jay's work for a while. Had him do a bunch of parts on my street fighter project.

Don't worry jay..I still have more parts to send...just have to make up my mind on what direction I wanna go with what parts. ;D

Looks very nice. I've been thinking about taking a bunch of parts off the get PC'd and this looks like a great option.

Just a quick question, which plates are the SV650S rearset plates and which are the naked ones..? I've always wondered about that on the first gen SVs.

The SVS are the "isosceles triangles " and the Ns are the "right triangles" as quoted to me by avc ;)

They essentially place the rearset an inch or so higher and back.

looks like everything turned out great. 05+ looks so goofy with a black frame and silver/alloy rearsets. get some pics up of them on it!
