Minor body mods

A while back I asked if anyone had ever had the Flash Gordon-like BMW badge and rattly plastic fin from the fairings of a K12 removed surgically (harder than it looks because of the molded bracket underneath which looks even uglier when exposed). After a minor rear-ender my panel was at the body/paint shop for repair so it was my chance to try it. For an extra $100 I had it done. I pulled the badges off the rattlers, ground the pins off the backs, and attached them to the fairing with 3M double-sided emblem tape. While I was at it, I had the front fairing repainted in gloss (it was scuffed up too). Here's how it all came out.
