So the TLS is finally getting it's well deserved makover. Currently the frame and wheels are getting powdercoated satin black. The fairings are getting sprayed Jet Black...

I'm hung up on spraying or powdercoating the fuel tank...What to y'all reckon??

Cheers,
Kiwi

Spray, the powder will not match the spray and the tank is far too close to the plastics so the difference WILL be noticeable.

Spray. The tank really needs to match the plastics.

Cool, thanks for the help guys. Spraying it is...booth is setup in the basement, and the wife loves it...Just a little more body work needs to be done to fix the previous stealerships botch job...Why the hell use metal plates and glue to fix panels when glassing is easier and stronger???...
