Bloody hell, I think you did mate - my rear arches have been fibre-glassed because they have rusted out, theres a bit of bubbling on the rear pillar, and on one of the front arches, althought I have some fibreglass front wings to fit. Its done 85 K miles.

Best mod first of all is to get Motobuild (http://www.moto-build.com or dirrect page to catalogue http://www.moto-build.com/mainsite/100_catalogue.html) to professionaly lower the suspension, and fit some qualilty shockabsorbers while you wait. Cost me about £350 and took about 4 hours but deffo worthwhile! Improves cornering, makes it more stable on crosswinds plus it look great. Thats all I've done. To sound great, I got a 30mil hole cutter and drilled six holes in the bottom of the airbox, job done, and cheeper than a performance filter :cool:
