Thanks guys for the compliments. Turned out better than I had hoped for. I like the blue/silver combo. Paint line is pretty straight. No runs. Clear coat is hard, shiney and solvent proof. Badged. Back in it's storage box until needed.

cspcrx - yep, I'm really happy. Much better results than my first attempt. Clear is much smoother this time w/ a lot less orange peel. I'm going to use it as it is. No wet sanding and buffing needed.
gstegman - a little. Chassis/rolling stock is just about done. Few issues still linger with the frame and such but, have switched gears and am diving into the motor. All is broke down, cleaned, gasket surfaces prepped, painting completed. Necessary parts, I think, have been collected. Couple of components rebuilt and ready for reinstall. Clutch pack got new friction plates and heavy duty springs from CHP. New ignition/stator kit. Kickstarter shaft is being replaced (notice damage at kickstarter mount. I'd say that is pretty buggered up!!). Will be installing TB 88 big bore kit.

Motor number is Z50AE218610. Bought off ebay a couple months ago. Motor was stripped, cleaned and gasket surfaces cleaned. First pic is prepped cases with new main bearings installed. Old ones were getting a little crunchy. Second is the enlarged oil hole for the hi-pro oil pump (2mm). Three and four are the innards being reinstalled. Hidden below all that there is new everything - seals, gaskets, shift pins, kickstarter shaft and clips, hi-pro oil pump, cam chain and gears/rollers, clutch friction discs and hi-pro clutch springs. In pic four you can also see that a TB 88cc cylinder and piston have been installed too.
