Damn it! You all are making me reconsider painting her with all these compliments/comments. Originally I was planning trying to just go with black flames over the red but I'm worried about trying to strip the clear coat off the tank without damaging the base coat.
Also I'm hoping someone else enters the contest this month. Nobody really likes winning by default.
you dont have to strip off the clear to paint flames on it. Just sand it lightly with 600 grit paint flames over the existing clear and then clear over it. id lean more towards pearlescent ghost flames myself. Any decent painter can put flames on that without hurting the existing paint
cant let you go un opposed. so here's my inheritance. Its a '79 Suzuki GS1000. Heavily modified by my dad and she is Gnarly! Her name is Zara and she was my dads best friend. After he passed away I vowed to give her a loving home.
