Cool The fastest color GT now has a painted top case

Well, just trying to keep up with the Messengers, but it was a good deal since the paint shop already had the paint laying around, I had them squirt the top case and I picked it up today.

Me likes, not as essential on the Crystal Grey as the Blue or Graphite, but damn it looks good.

Very nice! Congratulations. As you say, not as essential as on the other colors as mine is the CGM also but I want to paint the top box anyway. Now I'm jealous and can't take the pressure! :o

And, I was thinking my deep blue metallic with Top Case was the fastest color on the forum? Hum, what was I thinking?

I thought Messenger had already claimed that title as well

Sorry that you thought the blue was fastest.

However, I got some yellow pieces of paper from the CA CHP that says the CGM is fastest.

If you want, I could mail them to you for you to take care of.

Bummer. If it were blue, the CHP 1150RT-P would have just shut down rather than take on a futle task.

Hey, that topbox looks really cool - I just hope mine looks as good when I get it back this week.

In terms of the fastest colour - of course the CGM is fastest - the silver reflective paint causes light to bounce off and therefore there is less drag, whereas the graphite paint absorbs light which slows it down. The blue is somewhere between the two.....
