Re: ====~THE FAIRBANK FLYER~==== It was a nice dry day today, perfect day to starting the painting of the wheels. So I began by taping off all the bits I wanted to keep free turning.I can paint in any nuts and bolts at a later stage, so as they don't look too shiny. Then started on the first coat of the textured paint.It goes on super nice and just gives a light metal rust feel to it.It really gets into all the little cracks and crevices. Then I allowed them to fully dry and then went at them with some matt black. This was what I was aiming for.Rough and old looking.An almost pitted look. It got a bit dark as I was finishing up, so i'll get some better pics in the day light tomorrow.I'm quite happy with how they look.Once I get to work distressing them a bit and put some dry brushing on them.They should look fun! I wanted to give the wheels a try first, to work out how these paints spray, before doing the frame. More to come soon.
