Well, the bike is now in bits. I have the fuel tank drained and off the bike as well as removing all the panels so they can be sprayed. My decal arrived in the week too so it should all look proper soon. I painted the bottom of the fuel tank with POR 15, and believe me, that stuff will not come off your skin if you get it on you. Currently in the process of priming the tank so pics will be along soo.
