What are you using for paint? Did you mask it off and rattle it? Or free hand it.

Yes It's Fast.
No
You Can't Ride It.

Most of the time its just lacquer paint they use on seats so if you use lacquer thinner it well come right off. Then use armora to shiny the seat back up

My ZR is faster then your ZR
