so the color doesn't pull everything together well.
paint the wheels white.

Not yet, it has only been like 20 hrs since the last coat of clear. I am going to wait a couple of days, it hasn't been all that hot and I want it to fully set up.

temp dropped on me while I was shooting the clear I wasn't getting good flow, totally sucked..... oh well what can you do. I have some foo bars on the tail where there were drastic elevation changes the fine line tape let go.... nasty little corner over spray! I am going to touch it up using some pinstripping techiques...

Thanks

Job well done. How much did it cost for the paint job? I reckon from your list it would cost me around $200 on just material.

Either way, spend more time prepping than you do painting! Should be like 80% prep and 20% mixing and painting. If you get real close to this bike you will see some spots where my shotty prep work screwed me over.
hellooooooooooooooooooooooooo i'm in the austin area

The pictures aren't coming up for me. Everyone else seeing them?

Looks great! I like the scheme. Are you going to put all of the sponsor decals along the bellypan once you get your numbers?
