    To someone else that has a clue...

    OK - Have an RG500 and VF1000 Bol d'Or to spray (plus the Duke fairing could
    do with a front makeover...)

    Soo - that's potentially a *lot* of sponds to pay someone to do it...

    My thoughts are that I could invest some money in a nice large compressor
    and spray kit and do them myself...

    Now - I have loads of experience with spraying on a smaller scalle (years of
    airbrush work on scale models) - so I have half a clue - and realise that
    there'll be a lot of prep work to do - but my questions are:

    Should I have a go myself? Is it *that* much of a black art?

    Anyone recommend a good compressor/spraygun combo - have been looking on the
    Machine Mart website as their prices seem preety good...

    How easy is it to get matched paints to Suzuki and Honda original specs?

    What are the best paints to use? Acrylic? Can I use 2 pack @ home if I get a
    proper respirator?

    Any recommended paint factors in Oxfordshire?

    I know - lots of Q's - but any advice appreciated :eek:)

    Have fin...
