All done, it's exactly the colour and finish I wanted, very happy.. I have more photos but it says they're too big to donwload, I'll see if I can reduce them but hopefully you can see how they turned out.. cheers for all the tips..

Badly chipped, too much close riding at speed  :007:  :164: plus, they were off the bike for a service, new pistons and springs, I have a mate who does sand blasting so I though why not..  :001:

The chipping was pretty bad, getting on for 50%, I should have taken a photo, last trip to Scotland finished them off.. worth it though, it  was an ace trip..  :020:

 :031: windy

Thank you to all for the nice comments, not a big job but big for me, I've only ever sprayed little bits that are mostly out of sight, these are on show for everyone to see my handy work...  :084:
