Default Tank Paint ideas

I have a 2007 FXSTC. The gremlins got to my ride and it fell over, in doing so it put a small dent in the tank. I have the 2 tone red pearl/black pearl paint. I was thinking of getting rid of the decal and going with something custom only on the inner black color. I am a union electrician soI would like to have the graphics coincide withmy trade. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Gee, if you were a regular electrician I would suggest a couple of ideas involving a circuit board with electricity flowing over it (in the panel, get it).

But as a union electrician it probably needs an approved banner and such (there are rules to follow and approvals to obtain, could take years).

Make sure you use a union painter or union graphic artist too.

Just teasing you, sorry to hear about ding.

I would maybe do somekind of globe with lightning inside being held by a sorcerer or maybe a skull type guy.Electrical storm, lightning bolts, tesla coil shooting off and hitting a harley emblem and lighting it up. Shoot me an email if you are interested in getting something done. Mike http://www.visualimpact2.com Here is my site
