Looks like the makings of a good repair job. I wonder how it came to be damaged in that section.

Thanks biltonjim, I noticed the tail light bracket had also been repaired too. I'm sure it's connected to the frame being bent.   

A failed test attempt at doing a pinstripe. I thought the tape name might bring me luck.  so I'll add the pinstripes afterwards instead. Maybe  didn't allow the paint enough drying time. The side panel looked very gangsta in gold though.

Had you considered painting the stripes like this:




I heard a story , I think it was about this guy's predecessor. It was said that he used to have a tot of whiskey before painting the line, in the bizarre belief that it steadied his hand.

Unfortunately I couldn't paint or draw a straight line to save my life.   I would love to be able to do that!
 I hear the some bikes like Harleys sometimes have tape stripe with clear coat on top. I'm going to give that a shot. It's not my ideal way but as long as it looks good I'll be happy with that. The gold paint I used first time was not very good quality, just diy shop rattle can. Next time I use that method I'll make sure I go for a better paint.

The back of my old van being used for a makeshift paint booth.   Saves me getting 2k in the house.
