    Hey Joe! This is driving me nuts! I'm amazed that someone actually tore their wheels apart and polished every single spoke & nipple - WOW! Now the nuts part - PLEASE derust the brake arm around the strap hole! It's the only thing left from being pure prefection! Fantastic job! Robert

    Looking good Joe. I was expecting to see those blackout hubs laced into the wheels.

    Re: @@ Paint it Black @@ FORKIN' UPDATE

    Thanks for all the kind words. I have to get my building done late at night or early in the morning cause I am gone every weekend. One more pic as I put the fork in the frame to see how it would look.

    Don't worry Robert - It will all get another polish and detail when I get it all together. Some of that is the red grease that likes to ooze from the races/some is lack of my attention to getting it clean the first time, LOL

    Got the BB Blackout cups cleaned and installed, but it was a long weekend and I lost steam. Have to wait for more progress pics.

    Re: @@ Paint it Black @@ May 10 Update Frame 'n' C/R

    Fianlly finished buffing out the frame so I can now post a full pic of it. Lots of color sanding and buffing by finger! For a $10 spray bomb it is miles deep and all black! CWC W/F Chain ring now adorns the build.

    Thanks, Joe

    Re: @@ Paint it Black @@ May 18 Update Fenders

    All i got done this week was the Fenders. Lots of sanding and block and dolly to get out the dents. Did the best i could and then got the extra holes filled. Lots of Gloss black on the outside and Gloss red on the inside. Will need to setup for a day before I sand and buff.
