Tank spraying??
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:43:03 PM »
Anyone had any good reasonable priced paint jobs done??
Looking to have my 550 tank done and don’t really want to pay an arm or a leg.

I understand you pay for what you get, but some of you may have had paint done at a reasonable price??

Thanks in advance

Knowing your occupation, have a word with one of the guys at the workshop that repairs/repaints your works vehicles, they are normally helpful to people in the job.
If it's got tits or wheels, it's hassle, if it's got both, RUN!!!

Hi, I got my tank back from the sprayers yesterday, it looks stunning, I need to put the chrome trim on and then sort out the Honda logos.

It was done by Steve Mills at MD Autos in Tewkesbury Glos, and the cost was very reasonable.

Was that just the tank or the two side panels as well?
