    Thanks!
    UPDATE:
    Tape off at 7:30pm...definitely more vivid colors from right eye. Starbursts and halos gone from lights. So far looking good.

    Glad it went well.
    No lifting over 10 lbs.: & make sure to wear Shield while sleeping . following those 2 rules;; is key to success.
    Been there, done that...

    Thanks! Interesting, I don’t have a lifting limit in my instructions, just no strenuous activity. The shield will be a big annoyance for 7 days as I sleep mostly on my right side.
    Still need to redo the Elgin chainguard logo and then photos somewhere.

    With me having detached retina, as well: I had extra restrictions.
    That Shield is definitely a hassle.

    Calling it done, redid the chainguard sticker. Not “final” photos but “DONE” photos. It looks a little crustier today with revised vision, rather like a ratty survivor. After all it’s suppose to be a “Rat Rod”. A common old bike with a few uncommon parts.

    Looks good. I like how the different color parts seem to all blend together. The emblems are cool too.

    Bravo Ed!
    Another quality build off bike!
    Watch out not to cut off the cool Fink topper in your pics. :D

    No problem, I need to go look at what else is going on in the builds. Thanks.
    Thanks fellow ratter and eye work survivor.
    Thanks, the extra stray parts just seemed fit the overall pallet.
    Thank you! Yes I think the RF will probably determine the “FINAL” photo angle and composition.

    Right eye about back to normal. Appointment on Thursday to do final evaluation on left one, probably another surgery.
    With that in mind I got out my digital camera only to find the lens isn’t operating as it should and won’t focus. So I’m stuck with iPhone photos. I still haven’t come up with a good doable background option based time and previous commitments. [​IMG] thinking I like this pose.
    Some other options...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Think you are right at least a 3/4 side view, the RF topper somewhat controls the angle.
    The camera is the one not focusing...its worse than my vision. Thanks though.

    If the camera isn't focusing right, try single tapping the screen on the area you want it to focus on, then take the pic.

    We should have a sub build off for best use of a rat fink topper on a bicycle noise maker. :D

    It’s past that just gives up blurred image. I’ve been through all the settings, camera is toast.
