I think blue would look good.
Going to be refinishing the hood once snow flies and figure I might paint the tank also. Jus wondering what you guys think. Blue, white or leave it. I'm thinking blue. If anybody has the same set up would like to see some pics. Thanks.
there is no paint that will hold up on the tank.gas vapors leaking out of the tank will lift ruin it.
I work at a body shop so it would be done right. Not rattlecan style. Don't know why some vapors out of the cap would make it lift.
I like the look of red hood and tank with blue seat. Its how the avatar <--- is set up, not that you can tell. LOL

I had that same problem with a custom painted metal tank done by a professional custom bike painter.I believe he even applied an epoxy or some other type of sealant around the gas cap ring but it eventually wears down,I think it would happen even faster on plastic.Just my opinion and past experience..
Thanks for the advice. Maybe I'll just look for a different tank, instead of wasting my time painting and being disappointed later.
Depending on what tank you have ,fourwerx makes a carbon fiber cover for an oversized tank but that will cost you close to what a new tank would..
