Re: MegaPixieRay RRBBO8 (Paint being slung on)

Cranked up the paint slinger today and got the main part of the frame...





You can see the Red a bit better in this set of pictures. Still need to paint the Nanner Seat support black and add some black to the top tubes.

Thank all who commented...

Trying to decide if I want to paint a dart on the top tube that blends in with the switch / battery plate that mounts to the top tubes behind the Head Tube. The Nanner seat supports / sissy bar will be painted black.

Re: MegaPixieRay RRBBO8 (Paint being slung on)

Paint is turning out nicely. I like the fact that the rear braces will be black. It makes the Pixie frame lines stand out more.
How are you mounting the battery plate? Shouldn't you do that before the final coat of red? Is the switch going to stick up out of it or will it be hidden underneath? Is the plate long enough to mount a flattened out Schwinn headbadge?
Sorry for all the questions. Trying to wrap my head around what options you might have.

No problem kingfish, switch is under the battery plate and it will get attach in a way that lets it be removed if needed.

Bottom of battery plate


Is it even possible to flatten a Schwinn Head Badge out, without FUBARing it up?

Paint came out great. Cool to see the springer nanner mounted again too.
I like the patch. It would look cool as a license plate.
Yea I was thinking the same also...
