Nice rear fairing, but for my opinion, the rear is too square.(personal opinion)

Looking good so far mate, First thing any bandit owner serious about making a fighter should do is cut that fookin ugly subframe off IMHO, good work fella.

BTW what did ya do with the subframe after ya lobbed it off? i know 3 people who just junked theirs, i put mine on ebay and made £100 off of it. there are people out there who will pay good cash for that shit.

powder coat is a different type of coating than paint. You use static electricity to get plastic powder to stick to the metal surface, then bake it in the oven. the oven melts the plastic into a nice smooth finish.
THANKS, interesting, this tecnical.
