Considering this paint job - thoughts?

I'm considering this paint job for my track plastics. Since I'm using the stock tank and stock lower-tank fairings (the skinny silver piece that "pops" off), I was kind of constrained in how I could paint the bike. I considered doing it stock but decided I wanted it at least a little bit different.
Here's what I came up with. thoughts? Be honest - like you guys usually are about paint jobs =)
I know the silver mid section looks white in the photo - it would really be the stock silver color though. My photoshop skills suck =)

IMHO nothing special....
I'm thinking to get a set of fairings for track days: SPR matt black is my preference.....if can fit the new F4 tail....

Not really to my taste, but one suggestion, why not try a few ideas in stretch vinyl? It peels off if you don't like it! If you love it, then get it done ;-)

First off swap the black for red to match the tank
Put some number boards on the front and tail
then make the red a little bigger so that it would follow the lines same as the mamba-

Uhm...even the tail fairing looks white.
Why don't you go with the Veltro Pista look?

Doesn't work for me, sorry.
Maybe with a metalic green bellypan, and red seat. This way you'll have an almost MV colors and and almost Italian flag ;-)

The veltro is my all time fave, but I'm stuck with a red tank and a sliver lower tank fairing =(
