How did you do get that effect?

Spray painted it flat black then laided some material on top of it. Then sprayed a clear coat on over it then pulled the material off of it. Material was just kinda like a netting type of stuff, it was coolest one I could find at the craft store. Everything else was flowers haha

Yeah my buddy who gave me the idea said he saw someone do it on a motorcycle once.

Also mounted up the front fender and added a light and changed up the seat. What do you guys think? I also added the dropstand, I picked up some hardware from Home Depot to connect it to the frame. I feel like it's too loose though. Anybody have any ideas? I'm just using washers and cotter pin and bolt right now

Looking good!
I have never worked with dropstands before, but maybe put a small spring on there under the washers? Maybe even a teflon washer between the stand and the frame.

Finished up stripping the rear fender and painted it up same as front fender. Also stripped down the rear rack. I am happy to say I'm all done using the wire wheel on this project!!!!! Don't think my arms/hands can take much more. Haha

I went with Luke's suggestion, nylock nut and bolt with a couple washers. Worked great.
