    man i got lucky today, had just enough time to prime 2 coats and then get a good 3 coats on the frame

    its like a dark cherry red, or maybe a plum, or some sort of fruit. :p

    right after the 3rd coat i heard thunder and then saw the clouds move in....

    waited till the last second to have it dry then brought it inside now there is lightning hitting all around my house, i got lucky on this one :D

    thanks for all the feedback i'm pretty frantic to finish this, but now i have to house sit for my mom who lives like an hours drive away and work and school, im not sure i will get everything done with this bike, i still need a tan seat and master link for the chain, wheels need to sanded and repainted over their hideous silver paint. so if i really cant get the time i may just slap the tires on it.
    :x

    we'll see tho :p
