plattner said:hey man, this is pretty much the look i was going for.... a couple weeks ago i made a few posts about suggestions for going for a red color theme... anyway.... i really like the look.... now it makes me even more excited about getting my bike done. i had not even thought about doing the nose piece.... so i have some questions...
1. what did you use to paint the nose piece?
2. did you do it or have a professional?
3. are you a-arms powder coated? (or something else)....
4. What made you decide to stop the paint/powder coat a little short on the a-arms instead of doing them all the way?
5. (its hard to see in the pics) - with the nose piece red, do you think it looks ok with the GYTR graphics (since the graphics
kinda have a little goldish silverish tint to them)
sorry about all the questions, but i cant wait to get mine done, and i think once i get these questions answered i will get mine done.... "StuntPunkJames" please reply or PM me...
If I would have know that I would have shipped ya mine to have em done...sound like a good price to meplattner said:also if there are any other suggestions you can give me about getting this stuff done i would appreciate it.... also the guy i have lined up to do my powder coating told me he would do it for $40 per set or a-arms, so $80 to powder coat them.... you think that is a good price... thanks Plattner
Hey man I dont think im gonna use the decals that say Yamaha $10 and their yours (few for shippin and a few for the stickers)....and if some1 need a pic of the other decal he needs let me knowplattner said:ha ha ha sorry baout using the word "sticker"... i will refer to it as a decal from now on. ha ha.... anway, With the GYTR white drip graphics kit, you get two little white banners that say "yamaha" and they go on the nose piece... (you can see them in pics of my bike)(pics of my bike are on the thread "golden raptor" in the discussion like page 3 or 4 or something).... and then also in the kit is a little triangle Yamaha symbol that goes on the top center of the nose piece, i didnt not put it on mine (but if i am painting my nose piece red then i will want that decal also).... do you have deminsions of these decals or know which ones i am talking about? how much would you charge to make them? i would like them the way they are in the kit, but then also i would like the same thing but with a clear background on the decals not white.... i think it might look better, but no way to tell unless i have them both and can hold them up... thanks Plattner....sorry about this being so long, ha ha ha
