to be honest i did want the black bits to be painted blue like the original scheme, but they ended up black at the paintsprayer's error. but i actually much prefer the black so i reckon thats fine Very Happy

ive had some new graphics printed

I meant as in, its an old bike, you'll always be tinkering to some degree. I really enjoyed the VFR400 though... really enjoyed it.
