Alright guys, I started to paint it tonight!!
Here ya go more photos. The paint is going to be a 4 stage job. First up
Finishing wet sanding the tank: Remember the nasty dent?
The black you see in the primer is actually a dust you apply over the primer before you block sand. It shows the orange peel as you sand it goes away and this way you will know when to stop sanding.
quick shot of my bike and my brother'* bike. Oh guys BTW sorry its NOT a 84 as my brother corrected me. His bike is a 1994
Ok here I brought all the body parts to his other body shop for prep and first coat of paint.
Ok first coat applied. Its called 'Ruby Red Metallic':

Shot of second stage second coat. The paint has a really nice blue tint to it because of the blue flake in the paint:
Just a little glimps for you guys to see what is going to be put in at the final stage when I'm ready for it.
