Been waiting on the bike to be finished an it finally is. The color came out better than I could wish for.  I want to thank @Bigturbomax for helping me with this project and all the projects to come since I do have some items on the way.

Nice looking paint job and nice shade of green! Did you paint it yourself and if so, spray can or other? # of coats, clear coat/what kind? The process in short.

I wish I had painted it myself but I am not talented enough to do it.  A  co-worker of @Bigturbomax who paints cars did the work and he did an excellent job

Yeah my buddy in the body shop did the paint in a booth with pro tools using a Ford color called "highland green metallic" from the special edition bullit mustang. Im not sure how much clear he used, but it is GLOSSY in person. Came out real good.

What he said.... the pictures give it no justice you need to see it in person

Would it be overstepping to delete this out of spite?  Totally copied me :(

 

I wouldnt do that though... I mean... it is the sincerest form of flattery after all

I like it, I was thinking about doing o.d. green at first then my friend showed me the green from the mustang and I liked it. I'm new to this site and I just got the fz07 one week ago.  Do you keep your bike in a garage or covered and what other mods have you done to yours, I'm trying to get ideas about what to do next besides getting a windscreen or fender delete

I keep my bike garaged at night, but during the day it sits in the arizona sun during class and work

I have too many mods... i really should go through and start a thread/journal about it but havent gotten around to it. 

But needless to say its probably easier to do a vid/ walkaround

That would be a good story.  Getting arrested for stealing your own bike

I thought that looked familiar when I first saw this thread.  It is a great looking color.

I had no idea someone else has done this color or similar to it. I think both bikes are beautiful.

You would have only have had to search 125,000 posts.  I am surprised you missed it 😋.

Awesome! I love the bronze exhaust header color combined with that green. You should try to incorporate that more (bronze wheels?)

@Bigturbomax has a bronze that I was looking at for the frame covers I might doit not sure yet.  

 

@sorkyah not too big on red myself I think it would over power the green and that's not what I want
