    Can't wait to see it with the clear. It's already one of the nicest jobs I've seen!.........All your time and effort is really showing now. Make sure you do a "start" and "finished" pics at the end of the build! NICE!

    Can't wait to see it with the tank in place. Feels good to see the light at the end of the tunnel,... I'm right behind you. Guys like you and Karfer have taught us to pay attention to "details". BUT, you forgot to tell us how much of a PIA it is. :lol:

    try painting pinstripes on an assembled small bike where if you mess up you CANT use acetone to remove and redo(did i mention they can roll some while youre doing it :roll: ) im glad to hear someone else is having as much fun as me :lol:
    at least itll be worth the trouble.......my son loves it even though its NOT red :shock:
    d'oh!! forgot to mention the clear im using is testors gloss coat#1261 over ppgs etching primer over a dull surface you can get a nice low gloss of if you want it to really shine you can get out the rubbing compound and make it miles deep(gotta love lacquer clears!)
