I like the tank emblems rather than the stickers.

Gold striping looks good.

Try your emblems with a straight line instead of those curve emblems.

My issue with the stock emblems is that they are blue, I need gold.

I'm likely not going to use them at all. Still looking for something for the tank.

Trying to decide what stripes to use on the Vetter:



Decided simpler is better.



Need to find a gold version of this, or Sportster for here.


Then wet sanded and polished all of the parts but the top case.






Came out pretty good IMHO.

The HF 3" polisher was amazing for this.

Lastly if figured out why I keep popping fuses, Turns out I pinched a wire on assembly. Easy fix.
