Paint work on Blue 310R

I was thinking about blacking Johanna out a bit. But after I compared pics I'm not so sure anymore, even though I did like the black (it's photoshopped). What do you think?

It looks good but I still haven't figured out why making it even less visible is a good idea. It's just me I suppose.

Look up messages from porth. His is like that, I think it looks great. In fact I may have gotten it if BMW had it all black stock.

Anyway, I went a step further and had the spring and other whitish parts black also, and it looks even better imo.

I agree that it does look better with just the two tone color scheme. Going to require a full disassembly to get all those pieces painted properly however.

I got a quote from a shop in LA: $300 for this job to make it black. I'm not doing it right now, but good to know that this option is available.

Aaand it's done. Greg here from the forum helped me out Plasti Dip it, and I definitely like the blacker look.
