    That black chrome came out so cool.
    Great idea. It reminds me of manganese.

    Looking forward to seeing a mockup.

    Keep of the good work!

    Thanks for the positive comments. Just working on the little stuff & hope to get the big stuff painted so I can start puttin it all together. I'm happy with the black chrome paint & still need to blast & paint the wheels the same color. Hopefully after this weekend. Gonna spend it with the family. Lots of good food & maybe even a few beers! :lol: :lol: Thanks for lookin! 8)

    Subtle, yet bold. Yours is shaping up to be one of my favorite builds!

    Re: BAD APPLE Update 6/29 Springer Assembled

    Thanks Tin! As a matter of fact I have been working on it today. Temp is 101 & about 110 in my metal building. I've been painting some of the smaller parts & will post pics later today or tonight. The heat helps the paint dry a lot faster! :lol: Had to come into the house for a cold one & to cool off. Still haven't painted the frame yet though.

    Thanks for lookin! 8)

    Re: BAD APPLE Update 7/9 More Parts Painted

    Finally a little progress! Got some more parts painted. High temp today here was 105, so I shot these parts & let them bake in my shop which is a metal building about 112 degrees inside! Painted until I ran out of paint, but have more on the way. It took quite a few cold beers to get this stuff done as well! :lol: Frame is not painted yet, saving that for last while I work on the little stuff. I figure the sooner I paint it, the sooner I will scratch it! Also cut 1.25 inches off each end of the bars because I think they were a little too long for my liking. Anyway here are some pics of the progress. I'm also trying to decide whether to paint the spring on the springer green like the frame or leave it as it is. Any input from you experts is welcome & appreciated! Thanks for Lookin! 8)

    Thanks Buddy! It was so hot here paint dried before it could run! Lucky me. Guess that's a plus for hot weather. 8)

    Re: BAD APPLE Update 7/9 More Parts Painted

    You know I'm a fan of this color, I'd leave the spring as is. Everyone I've seen painted a contrasting color has 'stuck out like a sore thumb', to me anyway....you asked... :roll: :wink:

    Cheers,

    I agree with Dr.T I am a believer in the "less is more" rule and think it is always a good thing to leave them wanted more versus giving them more than they want. Although, if everyone did that around here it might get boring. :?

    Re: BAD APPLE Update 7/9 More Parts Painted

    Thanks for the comments & advice guys! I think I have to agree with you guys that "less is more", so I think I will leave well enough alone. Besides it's already painted & that's just one less thing to do. Runnin out of time!
