    Interesting, I like.

    If I thought of this I think I would have cut the fins first, then cut the tank out. Just my $0.02

    Well..I primed and finished the frame today in the Carport..it warmed up..yaa hooo!

    The Finish on my Bike is a "Krylon Suede"it has a killer texturte to it..and it's close to the Primer Red Color I am after...
    [​IMG]
    I soaked my chain..( lots of chain talk lately :lol: ) in Prosolve and wire brushed it..I am surprised it came out like NEW!
    [​IMG]

    and I printed up The Art work for my Chainring..I am a HUGE lover the the "Pin Up Girl" work of The 40's 50's and early 60's
    I bought some little Crystal Stars to go with it.I will laminate the Girl and glue the little stars on..then I will clear coat it all after..The color of the Chainring is also The Frame Finish Color..

    I'm hoping to Finish up painting all the little bits and get er back together.......
    Man ,I just want to Ride this Be-atch!

    here's a little Video of The Carport..and The first of about 7 coats I put on it.
    I hooked up one of my 36 inch Industrial fans after each coat..The Air
    movement helps LOTS!
