Delkevic, I #*$!ing hate you!
So after waiting 4 months for a custom painted scheme, I finally got the package a few days ago. It took so long because after I emailed pictures, descriptions, and a basic write up of what I wanted, they still messed up a few times as if they never even bothered to look at what I wanted once. Plus, once they finished, they broke some pieces while packing it, so they had to redo them all over again.
So I open up the box, and its packed nicely, smells like SARS, but everything is in one piece, which is good. Paint is pretty good, most pieces are flawless, some have blemishes, and the upper cowl has a major running of the paint (which I thought was going to be the biggest problem, until I tried to mount the pieces)...
Now that leads me to the problem all of us have experienced with aftermarket plastics. The parts do NOT fit! So far I have only mounted the front fender successfully (yeah, thats it). I tried to mount the gas tank cover, and Im not kidding when I say the mounting holes are over 3 inches off the mark, and has about an inch gap between the plastic and the frame.
Before I get started on it again tomorrow, do any of you people have decent experience with this stuff? Any tips, write ups, etc.? I quit smoking, and Im not kidding when I say I bought a pack today just because of this. I really dont want to break any major tabs, but even when I try to pry it with a screwdriver, it still wont get close.
What the hell, right?
