That looks really nice. Thanks for the tips Matti.@OddJob is the patina master. He has a technique with spray paint to simulate rust.
"Spray a few spots of Cinnamon and Dark Taupe where you want rust to be. Cover those spots with mustard so that will wash off with the top coat after it's applied and reveal the 'surreal rust'."

Currently I am waiting for the frame to arrive. (Ruff Cycles mentioned a shipping time up to 10 days, but its three weeks already?!??). Their customer support is great and told they will be shipping soon, so that will be fine.
The lasercutter for the fork crown plates is the same: 3 days till its ready. Now also 2 weeks waiting.
I don't mind waiting a long time, but when a company advertises with a short delivery time, the expectations will be there as well for many customers.
What are your thoughts on:
- RAL3005: (Indian colour?)
- RAL8022: (blackbrown)
- RAL3007 (blackred)
Still looking for a nice antique-vibe colour. I really enjoy watching colours for a bike build.
We will see when the parts pile is here.
