you obviously put a lot of effort in the paint job, it looks very well done. But I think it's too bad you didn't fill the tank badge mounting plate dent, don't you think it's a little bit of an eye sore? just my opinion though, maybe you intentionally left it like this

What did it look like before you started working on it? And what did you have to do to get it in shape?

And welcome to the forum btw
