Paint options.
Anyone know of a computer programme to paint a Nelli image, to design a really nice paint job.
A bit cheesey perhaps...Italian flag colours.
I know paint shops offer this service, but a home designed one would be great to tinker with when our Nelli's go into hibernation.

One chap I talked to on the day I test rode mine said, they'd look cracking in white?

Anyone know of such a computer design programme or something on a CD???

You can use photoshop or plenty of other photo editing packages to substitute colours... to do it well though takes some skill and patience.

Mines At Dream Machine as we speak !!

Decided to paint the RS

Bright Pearl white (a-la Ducati 848)
No matt bits whatsoever (going to be covered up with Laurences carbon goodies anyway)
Carbon Benelli graphics as per standard but edged in gold
Carbon RS lower fairing graphics with gold outline instead of black over yellow design
Gold RS on Tank, front & rear fairings (to replace per std silver items)
All decals laquered over

Andy at Dream Machine is a joy to deal with :clap: and very enthusiatic about the paint job....wants to create a factory look but one they wished they had thought of first....

Will be about three weeks...:ele: :ele:

Laurence...where's me carbon :D !!!!

sounds very nice indeed - understated but and excellent choice of colour and decals - can't wait to see the pictures. Dare I ask the cost?

the metalic red is my favorit too ;)

I used gimp 2.6 (freeware) to change the colors it was only a test if its possible to change the color without studying a superadvanced program. It´s crazy how complex the good programs are! Too much for me :doh:

These pic are far away from perfect but for a "quicky" they are ok I think :rolling:
