BMW black sapphire metallic parts back from painter
« on: March 10, 2018, 07:32:42 AM »
Got my tank, side fascia pieces, lower belly pieces and side fairings back from the painters. Had them painted bmw black sapphire metallic. Here is how the tank looks. Cant button up the tank or carbon side panels because I lost the metal inserts for the tank and screws and 2 rubber grommets. Ill add the side fairings, lower belly fairings and small fascia parts though. And button up the carbon tail. But I have to say the black sapphire metallic looks way better with my carbon than black storm metallic.  Ill add another pic of the other painted parts that are on the table before they go on the bike tomorrow.

Here is another pic of some more parts painted bmw black sapphire metallic added to the.  The pic doesnt do the paint justice.  And you can also see the 2018 Akra headers and 2018 Akra gp can installed on my 2015 SKR

It looks like it could be good...but the picture makes it difficult to see.

This, either take your bike out into daylight or grab a real camera, if you can (or both, ideally :)

I assume these were taken with a phone?

It was not only taken with a phone after 6 shots of whiskey. But taken with a phone after the phone was dropped after 6 shots of whiskey and the lens cover shattered.
