Painted Radiator Cover

So, I spray painted my side covers to match the tank and was happy with the results. I ordered a couple of radiator covers and spray painted one of them red to see how it looks. Don't mind the string - I just wanted to get an idea of how it looks without taking the old one off.

Why do my photos come in upside down?

It could be the orientation when your taking a picture on a mobile device
If you angle down too much the Accelerometer will reverse it, but you can turn the picture afterwards to landscape, happens to me too.

Looks good! I'm thinking about color matching some of the pieces to the tank and fender as well. I plan on purchasing a stock fender, since it is around $20, and cutting it down like a short fender. Then color matching it.

I'd like to see that. What color is your bike?

Try resizing your pics to something around 500kb. I don't know what the limit is but the site compresses the pics and that's where the issues are.

Mines the grey one. I was thinking of painting it flat black, but the grey is really growing on me.

That's why I bought a black one. The colour already matches the rest of the bike.
