Decals added to the lower fairing and clear coated.
The decals were very thin and cracked in one or two places but I managed to get them on but not perfect.
Not sure if I should add the honda decal to the transparent area or leave as is :think:

You get a small piece of mesh for the lower fairing, just needs cutting to size. Time to get on with the exhaust pipes next and add a coolant pipe and add the front indicators.
I left the headlights dry fit so they line up with the fairing when fitted.
sorry it's taking so long but my room (man-cave) is being decorated :shifty:

Finished up this build at last :shifty: just had the exhaust to complete with silver foil and paint and the cowl. ON fitting the lower cowl the decal split and lifted along the edge :angry-banghead: so will touch that up.
Anyway I enjoyed the build and I learned a lot from it. fancy doing another bike :think:

Very nice Casper. Love the half n half finish. Shame about the decal shipping, but that's a fairly easy fix.
Cheers

Thanks Mark, was a bit tricky with three fingers but got there in the end :lol:
I used very thin silver foil for the exhaust instead of Bare Metal and found it easier to use to be honest. Lost a tiny corner off the cowl as it sought on my sweater :roll: All in all a very enjoyable build and for mr very challenging. :)

Bare metal foil isn't the easiest of things to use, especially on a round shape. The foil gives a good effect.
