hey boys n´girls

I´m thinkin about repainting my R1
:cool: and do you have any tips on what kind of job is required to get a fine result. Who should do the job, the lokal paintshop or is it possible to do it yourself.

I did mine myself and I think it turned out pretty good,you can see it here
nice job twisted...

Who should I contact when wanting to by the paint (my yamaha retailer perhaps), and what kind of paint is oki?- Original/Yamaha or just any vehiclepaint?
I like PPG paint products,which are automotive paints. The only thing you need to do is make sure you get flex additive to mix with the paint,this keeps the paint from cracking or chipping due the the flexing of the plastics.

Well, this is all the painting experience I have so make sure that you listen to Twisted...
Hey your bike could look like a Picasso(sp)
