New rear cowl

I got the cowl from Honda the other day. I spray painted it myself, but am not satisfied with the results. The clear coat i put on gave the white color a yellowish color. I'll wait until after the New Year and have the cowl and the unpainted bottom fairing painted together to match.

I like it. That is the honda one and you just repainted it?

What are the steps you took in painting it?

It is the original Honda Cowl. $132 but well worth it for the look. I used Krylon white / clear coat paint. As always, I figured out a better way to do it once I started the process. Hanging the part by a string will help with the run off of paint and not being afraid to use the entire can will also help. By that, I mean, spray in wide strokes, not concentrated streams.

For some reason ive never liked the design of the Honda Cowl. Maybe its the SAC effect. :P
But it looks good. Just think the middle portion on the top should match the Tricolor Blue

Yea around Taylor St. Im usually on BARF, Bay Area Riders Forum, posting on there. I join group rides there. You should come join us sometime. Next ride will be on New Years Day. Either Mines Rd to the Junction or Lake Berryessa. Check out the group ride section.

It would be cool to see another CBR250R there.

On the Cowl paint job topic......did you sand the black paint off first before painting with white?

No, it came ready to paint. I'll just take it to someone to get a real paint job.
