Tank painted/shields powder coated

Thought I'd post some pics of the new paint job and the powder coating I did in my garage today. Feedback appreciated and you won't hurt my feelings if it's negative!

The tank is just sprayed flat black and clear coated with a matte clear. Only powdered the shields, headlight brackets, and small side covers. Tank wouldn't be expensive to coat if I had a big enough oven. $5 for more than enough powder and $25 for the gun/system.

Figured I'd match my helmet... don't often see people match the bike to the helmet, always the opposite!

I like the Honda Spelled out! My taste would have been same color but I would have made the H O N D A in red.

On a somewhat unrelated note. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get a dent like that out of a tank? I've seen some tricks for smaller dings, but nothing to that magnitude.

Usually they will screw a few self tappers into it (or special body work rivets) and use a puller to pull out as much as possible. Weld up holes and apply filler ............

Paint then hides everything.

Thought about that but I wanted the contrast of "original" paint/finish and the aftermath of dent and blood. A little post-apocalyptic/Mad Max homage. I figured I'd try something I always wanted to, and have some fun since I have a spare tank for a pro job later. Not satisfied with the matte finish (not thick enough) so I'm gonna do a thick clear and 0000 steel wool a satin/matte finish into it.

Trade secret... Tell you and kill babies and all... zombie babies!

Splatter effect achieved using a meat injector sans needle tip. Basically a large syringe w/o the tip. Sprayed the red into a baggie and then poured the contents into a plastic container. Draw some in with a little extra air, aim... FIRE! Amazing results. Do a couple practice shots for sure.
