cool,,i own my own pc business,,,,,,, :rock its cheap for me too.....but it costs everybody else serious money if they want me to do the custom mixes like that...... :lol

anyhow pics will be posted soon,,,,,,,cause i want mine done before summer,,,,,,i think though that the black fullbore will wait,,,,,cause i want the shock springs fading from orange to metallic white,,(bottom to top),,,,,,and the plastic still white,,,,,should be cool.......

well i got the flake in the other day,,,,,,,,and after riding today.....which BTW the YFZ with the cam mod,,,and the 15T pulls so hard my arms are like jello.......LOL :lol

this week i should start teardown and stripping and get the powder ordered and have it mostly done except for the plastic, and hubs......but the general look will be there.......i will have a pic of the flake up soon though.....

and i will wait to see what it looks like with the stock white bare plastic before i really order fullbore...... :what


and yamahauler,,,,,,i cant imagine PC'in stuff for less than the powder and materials cost me,,,,,,,,im in it to make money not to spend it on everyone's stuff :nono my flake alone was $ 100.00 :lol

OK........well i ended up doing the subframe, pegs, brake lever, rear fender brackets, steering stem, shock springs front and rear,,,,rear hubs, and motor mounts in mirror black with flake in it.......but the flake is real small wont show up in the pics..........

frame, lower a arms, and parking brake top in orange glow. the flake didnt turn out as i had thought,,,,,,,but i still like it.....

polished the stock top a arms...........


not too sure about the graphics and seat cover yet,,,,,,,,weather i want to keep it like that........or do just white plastic with a custom cover..........

next in order i think is some Hipers with 18's




so i guess its coming along........

Im undecided on the hubs now also,,,,,,im kinda waiting till im closer to getting hipers,,,,,cause the rears have hubs intergrated...and i dont want to spend the $$$ for a short time when i could put it towards rims and 18's.....

That looks sweet. But the white plastics don't really go good with the color of the frame.
Definetly get the black fullbore's, they would look extremly sweet.
Here is a pics of one of my friends Raptor's with the same exact color scheme as you have:





I think thats one of the best looking color schemes avaible.
Definetly get the fullbores, and keep us updated.

Cool make sure you post some pics when it's finished.
Also how hard was it to tear your YFZ down to the frame for Pc'ing?
I'm thinking about doing it next winter and I would like to know if its real hard.
I'm not hte best mechanic there is.
Also do you do PC'ing, if you do could you do some stuff for me?
I'm thinking about getting some stuff PC'd, I may/may not.

nah,,,,,,its not real hard.........there is a lot more stuff than my R's though thats for sure. If you arent used to doing such things just take your time.........

,,,,,,about the plastic it may be a while......hopefully by my birthday or after my next couple of bigger PC jobs................but in the mean time i may just remove the K&K graphics

yes i do PC.....but i rarely take stuff unless its local,,,but give a shout when you are ready and we'll see 8)
