    You always bring top notch skills my friend.
    The prelim sketch looks almost like what RUFF would build if they built a cycle truck.
    Love the homemade fatties too.

    Are you running 26/20?
    I planned that for Air Force Too, I just didn't realize how much difference there was.

    Yea, mixing brands usually does that. Some prefer rustoleum, some prefer krylon, others use what's on sale. As long as primer,base,and clear are the same brand you can generally turn out a good rattle bomb.
