    Question

    when you painted the wheels, it looked as though you didnt mask the bolt holes for the brake rotor's.

    Did you run a tap down the threaded holes after?
    Is the amount of paint negligible?
    If you did mask the holes, how?

    What did you use to mask of areas, special tape or regular masking tape from B&Q?

    I have never done any spray painting, just curious

    thanks

    I didn't mask the bolt holes or the end of the disc posts. I did mask the rear wheel flange though.

    Then the paint was about an hour old I cut the paint off the end of the posts with a single edge blade right back to clean alloy. The following morning I ran a tap down the disk bolt holes to clean them out but in fairness as you say the paint within was negligible.

    I do have a tip though .. If you need to mask up a threaded hole, use foam ear plugs and cut off the excess ....

    Yep, that's the 'money shot', isn't it?

    I really like the colours on the R1100s logo too - that has worked well.

    It now looks as sporty as an 's' model perhaps should. The original plain black looks very ordinary now.

    Err .... About 50 hours I guess including all the other little bits and pieces I've done.

    That's a great result, wheels and all, I love it. In fact I like the wheel colour so much I'd be tempted (if it were mine) to add a bit more blue either on the belly pan or along the lower edges of the black panels. Or perhaps some blue accessories to pick up the colour in the stripes.

    Something like these perhaps?

    I did think about adding something to the belly pan but decided against it. Unless you're laying on the floor looking at the bike side on then you really don't see much of it and I certainly wouldn't paint it for the sake of painting it. Knowing when to stop is a dark art.

    One of the admins over at Boxertrix has offered me a couple of their site logos. I might just use a couple of those carefully placed instead .

    Always liked the look of the 1100s and have owned a fair few.

    That's one of the nicest I've ever seen.
