Copy and paste from my previous post about decals:
I bought stick on decals from Classic Transfers (Robert Derrick ltd). They were excellent, being thin and a very
nice matt gold or silver rather than the typical shiny surface ones . They have side panels logos with pin stripes
included, but the tank pin stripes need to be hand painted.
Thoroughly recommend Vintage Transfers
Many years ago I sprayed a petrol tank and side panels candy apple red. Most people who saw it remarked
how good it is and were surprised I sprayed it myself using correct colour rattle cans from a specialist paint
supplier. However, it took me several goes to get nice as it was difficult to get an even colour of the red lacquer
over the metallic silver base coat over the whole area.
Recently I had a tank sprayed by Wicked coatings in Poole. It is totally fantastic - stunning. As I said to the lady
there "far too good to put on a bike and drive about. Needs to be in a glass case in the living room !"
I supplied Wicked Coatings with decals from Vintage transfers, but they made stencils from them and used
the stencils to paint the silver logos and pinstripes such that the clear lacquer surface is totally smooth.
Thoroughly recommend Wicked Coatings of Poole
