Well..
The story first I suppose ( posted before )
Bought a gsxr 600 with no plastics,exhaust,from a friend..they stole everything..got it real cheap..No numbers mentioned though,lol.
Low miles,engine in working condition,etc;,etc;
The first pic was June 26 I thinkg.Last picture was yesterday..the 27th...
and let me say..these fairing bolts..are expensive and hard to get on ebay..dealer wanted 7 bucks each..give or take.. :lame

Gracias :)

Its a Gm blue..its actually flat I decided not to clear it..I like the flat look and with the chrome decals it actually looks good in my eyes.
I forgot the exact color code,but if youd like next time we go buy paint which is soon as were painting my buddies bike,ill get the code for you.

Flash6R - No clear - I have it..but I decided to keep it flat..I like it.
Wanna buy a can of clear lol
I spent Night On firday..from about..7pm to 11pm
And saturday Frloom Noon to 6pm.
Sanding down the tank ( since its metal and the suzuki stickers on it and has most edges,it was the most difficult one to smoothen out)
And wet sanded everything else..I did it all with another friend..so about two days worth of constant work.
Painting took a few days..due to weather..and we didnt have a paint booth.
job cam eout very good though,Im working on investing in a real booth in my car shop for next year to start painting cars and crotch rockets ;)

And I spent 60.00 ( goes for 80-90.00) In materials,hardener,primer,Clear ,1 Pint of paint,and did the whole bike at a local store.
all in all..about 1800.00 for plastics,bolts,light,paint,etc;etc;etc;

Congrats to you,looks nice I saw the thread..
originally I was going to go flat black..but the blue was like 4 dollars over so I said Fuck it.
Yup,Feels good.Especially when your looking at it naked for a week and cant do shit about it,lol.
Not even a gas tank so you cant ride it down your block on the frame,ha

Thanks...Yeah, the helpless feeling of everyone else riding while yours sits dormant...It sucks but it was worth the wait...
