Removed and painted the rack, linseed'd the crank arms, and I'm taping the rear wheel nipples, so I can paint the rear rim and spokes to match the front. On the fence with grips b/c obviously matching that teal/mint color will b impossible! (Note to self on color selections!) I'm also still debating what to do with the chrome chainring... Not sure I'm gonna have time to do anything with that! And finally, I'm eagerly awaiting the finishing touch from Slowriderz later this week [emoji41]!!
Here's my setup to tape the nipples. I take a strip of painters tape and attach it to my square so that I can still see the markings just above it.
Then I use a smaller square along the top to guide my cuts and keep them straight. The razor knife starts nicely in appropriately spaced marks on the larger square, and all the strips come out exactly the same width.
I'll post a pic of the taped wheel one its wrapped, but this method takes about 10 min to cut 36+ strips.
