    I have enough brushed black metallic to do a fender. I bought a bunch extra to cover some car interior pieces and used a lot less than I thought. Not enough carbon though. I buy from AutoVinylSolutions on eBay.

    I'm sure there's youtube videos that give better lessons than me, haha.

    I'm just going to drop the VFR off to you and leave you with the keys and some money. I don't want to see it till it looks bad ass.

    If that's your plan, leave the title too. That way he can sell it, buy something that looks less like a whale, and wrap that for you instead

    Had this done for a while, might as well post the finished pics. Need to get out and take real photos sometime soon.

    '12 ZX6R Showa BPF forks. Had Jonny Rocket refresh them for me. Required new triple clamps and clipons (+1mm bigger), steering stem swap, and I decided to machine out the 06 upper triple to keep the flush look (09+ is flat and not offset).

    Also gave the wheels a good cleaning. Didn't have to respray which surprised me. Degreaser does wonders, almost looks new again.

    Also put on a new TST tail light. So much brighter than the Clear Alternatives one before, plus a bonus strobe function.

    thanks for the offers for help, i'll let you guys know if it's needed
    hey weld, do i have to remove the rear seat plastics to be able to take the exhaust pipe out?

    The bolt the midpipe hanging from in the pic is covered if the tail and plastic side cover is on. Have to remove it all.

    Oh yeah, I never posted this here.
