Hi everyone, like many I've started customizing my TW and I thought I'd share my first try in painting the tank.
I gotta be honest that I initially thought about installing a cg125 tank on the bike, but then looking at my Tw tank I thought it looks pretty badass already and it just needed some black, I'm still halfway through as I have to varnish and stick the logos on the sides, but for a first time try I'm quite happy at how is going 馃挭

I like the crackle black effect texture on tank ,the pin stripping for me is to much , but customisation is a personal thing .
I鈥檓 interested to see finished item though.
For a first attempt in painting / pin striping as you say it is well executed (y)

Make sure you use a gas resistant clear like Spraymax 2K so you don't ruin that fantastic pain job.

Thank you very much for letting me know, I wasn't aware I needed a different lacquer,I was just going to spray normal lacquer
