The paint work is coming along well, should have all of the paint finished in the next few days and have it back together next week.

If anyone wants to ever strip an fjr completely i would not recommend it..what a pain.

The colours I went for are pearlesent white and candy apple blue pearl.

Here are a few of the bits that are finished

Looking forward to see the completed bike, I think it’ll look great ! May not be as fast as the red bikes but should look good !

DennisFJR - curious, did you sand this piece before painting it? I'm thinking of painting the 2 on my 2016 FJR Black and wasnt sure if I should sand them down first. Tips on how you did it?

Hi. It depends if they have any damage...a light key up with some fine sand paper should be all they need...then a decent primer before top coat

Looks good so far. Always amazed that the guys tricking out paint jobs always seem to be assembling bikes in the dirt outside.

Dennis, I see your environment over there has perhaps been wet and salty. I'd recommend removing the ABS sensors, cleaning them up of any white powdery residue, and giving the plastic adapter and hole in the housing a little coat of silicone grease (or any grease) to prevent the aluminum from corroding and bridging to the sensor shaft.......

Great color. Looks kind of similar to the Cobalt Blue (2016)?

Hint: you don't have to create a new thread every time you want to update. Continuing on with the same thread is perfectly fine.

Looks VERY good, maybe a couple of pictures with paniers, and if you can bring the camera lower, bike on center stand, and picture of the other side as well, since your first picture is corrupted and fuzzy?

Very nicely done, Dennis!! It looks really good!

That white against the blue turned out very striking! It looks fast, just sitting still!
