    Haven't posted any updates here in a bit, mostly because I haven't done much. The tank is nearly done and I picked up my pod filters and rear light/plate bracket. I finally received my fairing the other day so that is getting done in the same color with the checkers down the center

    looking good I think i see some dry spray areas ,in this shot .It may need a few coats of clear in the same brand you painted the tank so far with.I am a fan of that tank shape as well nice aggressive lines.

    I know It needs some more clear, I had taken some 1600 grit to the 2 coats of clear I had on it as I wanted the vynal to have good adhesion. I am going to hit it with about 2 or 3 more clears and then wet sand, polish and wax to finish it off

    Ok
    So heres a bunch of dumb question for you
    Did you use an adhesive vinyl sheet to do the checkers?
    to mask out the areas
    and then cut the black boxes out and spray them?
    Do you have to use special adhesive vinyl for that?
    Do you precut it and then put it on and peel it?
    Sorry for all the questions
    It looks hot and I would love to try something like that
