What Colour Plenium? Hmm..



  Iceberg Ph1
To start with, not sure if this is the right section for this?

Anyways.. I spent the best part of 4 days sanding, priming, sanding, priming, sanding, painting.. (You get the picture).. my engine cover, my idea was to do it pretty dark as I wanted to colour my plenium red.. After the paint up though I'm not to sure now if red would look good.. Just wondered if anyone can think of a colour which would go well with this engine cover.. (I don't fancy polishing it, because I have none of the required tools or time lol) I have a plenium on the way from Russ so I will have a while to get it looking nice, but anyone with a decent eye for colour perhaps help us out :rasp:

Engine Cover: (Not totally finished as needs another coat)

Cheers guys/girls

Nice job you've done there mate, can't help but think a nice bright silver would look best. Have been told I can go pick up those motors for 30£ if I can get them out. Fun times ahead of me then.

Cheers guys.. Still stuck to what colour! Arghh! I did want red, give it a photoshop and see how it looks I guess..

While I'm here I may as well post up the oil cap now that I have finished that, just need lacquering now..

IMO The decals make all the difference! (have seen a few without and it looks a bit pant tbh :rasp:)

Same colour engine cover as me. I went with silver but am debating also to change them. Fellow mate on here has his P.Inlet's graphite grey and it goes well even with a dark engine cover.

Nice to see someone local too :)
