Finally Dipped My 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 600
I finally got around to dipping my bike. Been trying to take the time to put the bike up for a few day since I daily drive it. I want to first apologize for the crappy iPhone pics.
First I wanted to do the bike in gold for the goldRush Rally so I started with the rear cover in gold for a test. It's 3 base coats of black and 5 coats of gold metalizer.
Then I was curious to see what the fairing would look like the same way.
Next I realized it just wasn't coming out as bright/shiny gold as I wanted. So I changed gears and decided to go all black with blue wheels.
Now with the front cowl fairing completed.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I wish the finish was a bit more smooth than it is. I'll take closer photos over the weekend to show you what I am talking about.
BTW, I did the whole bike with just the simple spray can setup and used about 7 cans in total.
Some better photos.
Next, I'm debating actually painting the brake calipers gold. Not dipped but actually painting them. Then I may or may not dip the wheels. I want to always be able to go back to stock if I were to ever sell it down the road. (Which I prolly won't.)

Looks sweet. I think gold calipers and dipped wheels would really complete the look.

just use high temp engine paint, and the calipers will be fine.
THough i would reccomend a powder coat, due to the extreme heatJEEP: The dirtiest of the four-letter words

Turned out pretty nice. I like it.Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
