oooo 2many i think i just might have to send you a pm
well here is an updated photo
sanded off the paint on one fender, steelwooled all the nasty grey paint off the truss rods,crank,sprocket,stem,handlebars and most of the hubs.....it really shines now there is no way i can get the wheels done so im going to try to get them as smooth as possible (whoever painted them was very drippy) and tape off the spokes and paint them, probably cream.
almost have all the paint off it, hopefully i can get some painting done on it before this contest ends, the hurricane that is hitting us like tomorrow will probably mess up any plans i have for painting
this stupid tropical storm is ruining all of my plans, it has been raining here all this week, and the forecast is telling me i have pretty much an entire week of rain waiting for me too.....so this has popped my dreams of painting this thing by th deadline...
...so as of right now its now looking good, however i'm not calling it quits
i woke up early this morning on accident, stared out my window and saw SUNSHINE!
finally a day i might be able to get some painting done.
hopefully i'll have some pics up by the end of the day
man i got lucky today, had just enough time to prime 2 coats and then get a good 3 coats on the frame
its like a dark cherry red, or maybe a plum, or some sort of fruit. :p
right after the 3rd coat i heard thunder and then saw the clouds move in....
waited till the last second to have it dry then brought it inside now there is lightning hitting all around my house, i got lucky on this one
photo time PHOTO TIME!! :D
put another coat on today and some clear coat in the morning before class, came home during my break and assembled it to give you folks more of an idea on the look of the bike.
thats one shiny badge
obviously i havn't put the chaingaurd on or the crank and tires, i need to jet off to class tho so those will go on later.
I'm glad you made it between the drops and lightning.I actually have decent weather just no free time I have to work between the time my daughter sleeps and my wife doesn't need my help and that darn 8 to 5 thing but I really like that color very classy lady.
What would Jesus ride???
thanks for all the feedback i'm pretty frantic to finish this, but now i have to house sit for my mom who lives like an hours drive away and work and school, im not sure i will get everything done with this bike, i still need a tan seat and master link for the chain, wheels need to sanded and repainted over their hideous silver paint. so if i really cant get the time i may just slap the tires on it.
we'll see tho :p
