colorrite is a good company to deal with even if their prices are a bit steep. and im with everyone else on here with hating the fact that our decals are under the clear. why they do that i will never understand, i guess marketing/free advertising?
Protection of thier product from sun damage

So how is that eraser wheel going to work when you have to get under the clear to get to it?

+1. No matter what you do, you will have to get under the clearcoat to get at the decal. Also, keep in mind, the paint on these tanks is not very thick at all. You will more than likely end up getting into the paint a bit, regardless of how careful you are. Which leads back to the topic of this post.

I'm drawing up a design for my helmet to paint on. The words will read- "Shadow Rider". It may be a bit lame but not looking to buy another lid. Maybe try to find a custom t-shirt person to print up a custom t-shirt as well.

What does that have to do with factory motorcycle paint? Or pulling the decals off the tank? Start your own thread about helmet designs, or ill even go start one for you.

Paint???

I know this may sound like a noob question, but believe me, I have painted my fair share of M/C over the years...but my problem is, that I stopped a few years before they got rid of lacquer. With lacquer, putting 45+ coats of color on is nothing and then clear on top of it. Sanding every 3-4 coats unless you get "orange peel"...a lot of work....but....ahhh, the shine and depth of the paint.
So buying a qt of paint is nothing, of lacquer, that is.....what my question is, With the paint that's out today, urethene, I think they call it, how much would I need to paint a frame (black) and the tank, fenders and covers (VT600) (another color). Also, are there any good websites showing techniques showing the proper way to spray these new paints?
As soon as I get started on the project, I will add photos.

If I was you id drop the scratch and powder the frame, the rest you can get a good shine out of rattle can. And spray guns are even easier. For my lil knowledge it's not much different, spray multiple light coats and sand them clear
