Thanks Bill! I was aware of the front center stripe and pinstripe details. The painter is all squared away with that information. I have seen variability as to just how far back the stripe ends (or begins if you prefer) from inspection of original paint front fenders. Some start right after the curve for lack of better word, and some are a bit farther back by a 1/4 or 3/8 ". I picked a happy medium with mine to start about a 1/4" front the end of the flared section of the center raised area.

I have also heard of the brushed stays, but thanks for sharing that. I appreciate the knowledge share because there is much I don't know.

Tanks and rims are back home. I pick up the fenders tomorrow. This turned out SO nice!

Looks like the Dupont Imron "Antique Gray Metallic" that my buddy sprayed my '75 Honda CB550 with.

Some people liked to call it "Gun Metal Gray"

Very nice.

Thanks! I purchased the paint from Hutchinson, it is the Shell Blue Sheen for a 55.
