    Any one had their petrol tanks painted recently and if so how much were you
    Whether it was restored to original, custom painted or just repaired I am
    interested to know how much it cost you.
    A few mates and I are restoring a few old bikes so we are curious as to what
    paint work will cost.

    Thanks, any help appreciated.

    I painted mine myself and saved heaps , The paint cost $120 using 1lt
    of sprayputty primer, and if you buy 250mls of any paint they are all the
    same price and I used Metalic red in Acrillic for $37 and Thinners and clear
    for on top.
    It all depends if you have any spraypainting experience and the tools ,
    but with the amount of paint you get you could paint a few tanks .
    I hope that helped.

    Thanks Neadles, but if it doesn't cost much more to get somebody to do it,
    it may not be worth the effort to do it yourself.

    remember there is a few ways to save money when getting things painted

    I had the little CB250 tank and guard done when my car was getting painted
    ended up only $100 to have the tank done as there is a couple of ways

    doesn't matter on the colour so gets done with another job so time is bugger
    booth time is already paid for by the car , no time worrying about colour
    and of course the most important factor is CASH MONEY JOB

    I was just happy to have some dents fixed and a coat of paint that was red
    sort of blend with the rest of the bike, guess if you were getting all the
    panels done
    then as long as the paint is close then doesn't really matter

    find a good panel shop, if you are in syd I can direct you to the guy that
    did mine
    nothing super fantastic but cheap and for that sort of money not worth me
    stuffing about with
