(update latest event, buddy seat backside job)
After one and a half month of looking all over the world for Vinylspray aerosols, I finally found them. Not without problems again of course.

When we taped the first section and sprayed it orange, it came of the next day. Had to tell the store the whole story and redo the whole process of cleaning, grinding, taping and spraying.

After two days of taping each color and wrapping up the rest of the seat for protection - this is the result.
The blue color was mixed until it was about the same color of the blue used on the hood. I gambled the orange color on an existing RAL color and black was easy. It looks perfect.

Praying that it will last for a very long time, it should be able to hold when you sit on it but this seems to be another sort of vinylspray, so no more passengers and bags.

Thank you.

Yes, the only custom tuned GT40 Gilera in the world :D I will upload new photos soon. The wheels got airbrushed a few days ago.

I collected them today, put the tubeless back on and also the wheels on the machine. I've got a few problems though. The exhaust is terribly bad designed. There is almost no space to tighten and loosen the screws.

It's nearly impossible to get the exhaust studs back in!

Tomorrow I'm going to do the 2nd stage of stickers and when I get the rest of the stickers the last stage. But tomorrow after months of work the main goal should be reached!!
