Not loading photos is there an issue or something that I’m doing wrong?

Fantastic job, well done you looks lovely, i like the black engine finish with the polished alloy, i wish i had done mine like that instead of silver.

Enjoy it, and looking good weather wise for a while too,

Cheers eddie

Thanks Eddie l have timed it nice for the weather, you’d think I planned it!
Only fly in the ointment is that tha tank will need a sealer/liner. After a couple of days with fuel in the tank I’ve noticed two or three small blisters right at the back and perfectly in the Center of the top of the tank just above and below the front of the seat. I’ve just ordered a POR15 kit after watching swampy’s YouTube post, just wish I’d treated it before the paint job, although I think I’ll get away with sealing it before the blisters get any worse and put a tank protector on which I was going to do anyway. Not really a fan of tank liners but my hand has been forced and POR15 seems to have some good reviews so only time will tell. I’ve cleaned up the crash bars now too and they are now fitted so I’ll post a couple more photos soon.
Anyone with any experience with Por15 tank lining system would be nice to know how it’s performing.
