Somebody gave me a genuine Exercycle brand exercycle from the 1950s, many years ago. It was a super heavy duty beast and it had an electric motor to drive it so you really didn’t have to pedal it. Really, all you had to do is hang on and keep moving. Presumably so the pedals didn’t wack you in the shins.

I recycled it years ago but I kept the chrome torque tube and the electric motor. That motor runs my buffer.

The chrome tube? It was chrome and you just just don’t throw it away.

I remember helping mask off for the first time on a custom paint job when I was about 7 years old. That was 51 years ago.

Now dsys they make negative vinyl graphics. That do the masking for you all you have to do is paint.:13:

I found and saved this video. I will be using this video to perfect the technique.
Even if I never get it right. At least I'll have fun trying.
