Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
So the crank has now had the textured paint on and about three coats of matt black.It's now dry, so that's ready for rusting paint!
Sanded down the stem yesterday and put some textured paint on today.So that should be dry now too.I'll get some black on that asap.
The handle bars have been cut to the new length! 7 Inches off! Much nicer now More like a boardtracker.They have already had a sand,
so they are ready for painting up too.
and I cut a couple of little extension piece out of some fender struts for the bottom of the truss rods, which I just need to put a couple of extra holes in.
Update time.The head badge has been made by JesusJonz and is on it's way! It looks awesome! Pictures when it arrives.
The past two days it's been raining lots, so i've been in and out trying to paint in patches of dry weather and under a big table umbrella
I've been painting up the the handle bars.
Two coats of textured paint.
and a couple of coats of the matt black.
Dry and ready for paint rusting.
The stem has had a couple of coats of matt black.
Stem and crank being rust painted at the moment.Just put some stain on, so it's drying.
Cool! Cut down bars are going to look super cool on your build.I love that colour you chose too! Keep up the great work
Thanks very much!
I came home from work yesterday to find that the head badge had arrived! It's is just awesome! Terry has done such a great job on it and it's exactly what I wanted.
Here it is!
I have plans to paint it up a little and do some light rusty paint effect on it
Great isn't it! I can't wait to get it on the bike!
Yeah, I love custom badges. Terry is the best at them. If anyone wants one made, send him a PM. His user name on here is ( Jesusjonz ). This is the second one he has made for me and again, he has done a superb job.
The crank, handle bars and stem are done.I finished them off today with some dry brushing.
They have all been matt lacquered and are ready for fitting!
Time to slap that old rust bucket together!!!
