Race Bike Prep continues

With Willow Springs Race day just a week away again, I'm trying to get all the work on the racebike done.

After getting all the new body parts fitted, I took them off to paint. Who knew painter's tape left so much adhesive behind on lacquer paint? After trying to rub it off, I tried to gently sand just the adhesive residue off, but alas, I've really messed up the paint and will have to start over.

Does it really matter what a race bike looks like? I may just have to race an ugly bike and worry more about my race lines and less about my paint lines.
