NC30 Type 3 Respray

Post by st22041967 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:43 am

Well the bike is now officially "back on the road" now to make it look all pretty like. Unfortunately for me I have put some massive chips in the tank and to be honest the whole of the paint looks tired and faded.

What are people spending on resprays (True to original colors) and where are they going to get them done(UK ONLY PLEASE - I'm in Kent)?
What are people paying for decals/Stickers and where are they getting them from?

Suggestions on a postcard please.

I was recently looking for someone to do me an aftermarket paint job (inc stickers) and was getting quotes from 1500 to 2400 :o

Flipping hell! More than it’s currently worth. Was it magic paint perhaps?

AVR Paint Services are very reasonable

Had my NC35 tank resprayed 18 months ago, including a small repair and stickers (from CMSNL) fitted for £200 by a local chap. Farrout Paint in Congleton did the upper, headlight section last year, including repairing damaged indicator holes and fitting stickers (CMSNL), for £250. He also quoted £100 to do one side of the tail piece, just in white.
Except for those 2 occasions when I bought stickers from CMSNL I've usually taken my painted panels to Image Works just outside Derby, who make and fit stickers. Think I paid something like £75 for 3 panels last time and they did it while I waited (I've gone into this in some detail further back in this section of the forum). You can of course buy their stickers and do it yourself. A lot quicker to phone rather than email.

Just done this on my nc24. The paint was from RS Paints, & the stickers from Image Works. Both highly recommended..
Think I spent £250 on the paint & £130 on the stickers. I'm now going to do the same on my other NC24 & 1 of my RVF's. It's a lot of work
