"Painted" Decals Completed Today

XS Friends,
Since I couldn't find and affordable set of decals that is correct for this machine I decided to just paint them on the lower fairing where they are missing.

Those that have been following along know I purchased a set from Hungary but they turned out to be correct for the '85. I can use some of that set when I EVENTUALLY repaint the entire bike (probably next year) but the decals for the lower fairing were wrong.





Actually, I'm pretty pleased. I haven't been too successful with this type of painting in the past..... Used the baby gun from Harbor Crap Freight at .04 nozzle and sprayed about 6 coats on it....

Part is baking in the Georgia Sun.... I'm a bit too anxious to mount it (as usual). I'll get it on tonight.

MAKING FINAL PREPARATIONS FOR THE BIG
VINTAGE YAMAHA RALLY!
