Colour it all in with purple pen, job done.

I absolutely love the colour matched ring round the headlight.

Thanks for the comments guys, lets hope they're still positive after I've posted a few progress shots!! I'm gonna do a full walk-through once it's complete but for now here's a few I took today after a quick offer up...











There's still some slight trimming and manipulation to be done (not to mention adding mounting brackets, undertray, grill and paint!) but its going better than I'd hoped so far

Yep, 18 gauge aluminium. We have tons of the stuff at work so for me its pretty cheap and helps that I'm used to working with it.

I also contacted my powder coat guy yesterday (everyone's got one, right?!), and he claims he can colour match the ducati paint and quoted me 30 to do the lot I know the finish of powder coating wont quite be as good as a decent paint job but i don't want to be spending loads on something i might not like when complete!

You should be able to flat and polish it to a decent finish right?

That looks great. Fantastic work.

Question though - is it going to rub against your knees when riding? The bend running along the top looks like it might end up in a slightly awkward position.
