I picked up the newly sprayed tank and side panels today, I need to get the pinstripes done by a sign writer!
I am pleased with the colour it’s Daf Coral red ( RAL Code 3016)

The guy who sprayed my tank unfortunately a few days ago lost his mother to coronavirus and his business partner has had a bad dose too and is retiring from the business. These are very difficult times we live in!

Tank

Well that’s a happy and sad story all in one go by the sounds. Why hasn’t your man pinstriped the tank? It’s a bit strange. I do quite a few classic tanks for a living and always do the artwork in with the job. Sounds strange it’s been left off.

The tank was sprayed by a car sprayer and the original Benelli tank had hand done pinstripes on it! They are a line of red and black above and below the the large black band.

I know several car painters and they don't do pinstripes either.

So do you paint cars and bikes then Eric?
I don’t bother with painting cars anymore, it’s a rat race. I just do the interesting stuff these days. I’ve a customer in Leeds who I do the fabrication side of restoration on 60’s and 70’s investment cars but I also work as industrial and domestic multi trade. Bit hard to explain

Fitted the pin stripping myself today did it free hand and used a roll of black and a roll of white! It took a little care to get both stripes side by side.
I have since fitted the lower tank trim , filler cap and fuel taps. I ended the day respraying the Speedo and Rev counter bezels satin black.
I have finally managed to find a company to bright zinc plate a box of of bits that I need to continue reassembly.
