Sounds like fun....time consuming but fun. I too am very picky when it comes to the way the bike looks.

Me to , the bike is in great condition but its just the odd small scratch and a few of the plastics have faded , so its a good time to do it while its away for the winter , the biggest annoying thing is the paint flaking off the engine its not real bad but its need doing , just gonna be a pain in the ass to remove the old paint.
i'l post some pics as i get some work done.

How close is the bike stored to salt water? I've been lucky so far.
