Default dash bezel & spk. grill painting day

Thought it was a good day to get this little project done. I've been thinking about the look. I've seen enough color matched to the bike that I knew I wanted to do something a little different. I'm going with an aluminum silver color to match the black/silver of the engine and since I like subtle highlights I'm going to paint red lightning blots round the bezels and grills. Here's the first steps.

Gotta hit the gym, then I'll finish these up later on.

I got back late and had to wait on the spray coats to dry overnight before painting the detailing. After a couple of iterations, I'm not happy yet with the bezels so I keep at it until I find what I'm looking for. I do like how the grills came out, take a look below. I will get a dash pic once done.

Sry, didn't seem like there was much interest in this thread and I was going through a few more change ups. For me getting the bezels and grills to look right together was the issue. So in the end I simplified things. Putting the final coats on tonight, I'll get complete pics up asap
