    How hard is it to do something like this? [PIC]

    I've seen this Aprilia RS50 on ebay and i dont like some of the paint jobs on the old shape RS50's, im wondering how hard and expensive it would be to do something like this? in a colour of my choice!

    this should be in the off topic section

    wow thats hot

    i found if i sprayed mine with cans it would cost me about 80 for all the plastics (inlcuding primer and laquer ect)

    but for that youd need

    fairings spraying orange

    few black aprilia decals and aprilia lions stickers

    black pillion seat

    y panels spraying orange

    wheels powdercoating orange

    price depends on quality of paint and or whoever is doing it

    very nice

    you could get a shop to spray it the ford st orange and get a exact match (if you told them st orange)

    apply the stickers yourself

    but the wheels would need to be powder coated orange, remove tyres and inner tubes and take wheels to powdercoaters
