Maybe paint the 'indented' Testastretta on the side panels in Black ala Smarty's idea. http://gallery.ducatispot.com/smarty/photo/2960/

I've seen these done before, and I have always liked the look of it. What about painting the Air Runner Covers??? Just a thought. Leave the mirrors alone I agree. If anything ditch them for barends. I have all the DP CF panels myself, but do like the painted look too, it's different from everyone else. Nice job!

Yeah that does look pretty good... Maybe a little too much red but it does look clean.

I like the break up in color with the black on the bike but this looks good too.

Yeah, that'll look cool. I painted the lettering on my CF ones in RED and re-cleared them, I think they look great.

There's huge difference in the lettering between the OEM panels and the CF ones. The lettering on the OEM ones are perfect, whereas the CF ones suck!!!!
