    Hi all,
    I re-fnish my 5th gen as a spring project.
    Fairing was broken, especially left side. I fixed them first and I used cans and it is my first paint job. Color is BMW’s atlantis blue. If I need to paint something again, I never use cans. It doesn’t spray properly if need to paint horizontally... not perfect paint job but looks good!

    Nice, obviously not a Honda colour but if you didn't know you'd think it came from the factory like that. Really suits the bike.

    How'd you get "VFR" on the lower fairing? Like the color- unique!

    Its the decal from Honda for a late 6th gen.. Normally sits a little higher, but seems to work fine there

    “Vfr” is like 6th gen but not oem. I bought it realy cheap and there was no space on higher fairings. It is taller, I think.

    Bike looks really excellent. Which exhaust do you have, the high-mount really works :thumbs:

    Very similar to a colour used on 3-4th Gen in Europe.
