Re: Yamaha YZF750 Tech 21 Fujimi

Yes I know I'm going on veeeeery slow.......
Some details made me loose a lot of time like the wires and connectors....
Painted the rear lights....



just to try them....



polshed the rear cowls..... I have to mask the black area as in reference pictures look like satin and not gloss....



The wires I spoke about before...



the black tube is too thick so I removed it...



and this i what I made more than one month ago.... but I made the pictures only 15 day ago....
Only aluminium on the lower part of the tank and satin clear on the black number plate.... I like the contrast between gloss and satin....

Beautiful, Andrew! The finish on the tank and seat fairing is
flawless! What brand paint is that? I just acquired this kit, and
will be doing the Lucky Strike Team Roberts version... Wow!

Andrea - what did you use to get the "satin" effect for the black number plate on the tail piece?

Re: Yamaha YZF750 Tech 21 Fujimi

Very nice Andrew!! I'm always watching your work, admiring it...
I'm tempted to machine a rear shock reservoir on the lathe and send it to you!
Let me know when you start your Lucky Strike version

Re: Yamaha YZF750 Tech 21 Fujimi

Andrea - did you paint the black number backgrounds or are they the decals??
Someone or even I might have asked before but I do not remember - getting old lol
I know you masked them for the matt clear, but did you also mask and paint the black
Thanks
John
