As some of you know I painted some of the black areas on my bike w/a flat clear spray can. I know it was a stupid thing to do but it looked killer.
So I have this friend who has a bodyshop & we worked out a deal. I prep the stuff he'll paint it for me. Well things got a little more involved that either of us expected, mostly me, however we got it done.
What I decided to do was leave the top sticker from the factory set & remove the others. I also had Brad spray 3 coats of Orange pearl then the flat clear coat.
It took like 5-6 coats of clear to get the mixture right for what I was looking for.
Long story short I am REALLY happy with the way it came out. Real subtle, but still clean.
What do you all think?

PS. My buddies name is Brad & his shop is in Longwood FL. Samuels Auto Body. He does KILLER work!!

Thanks. Subtle was what I was after.
Nope no texture. Maybe the angle of the pic.
