    BEACH us true jersey beachers call it the beach lol ...
    and for the record i never really liked creamsicles lol :) but ya you can take the girl out of jersey but you cant take the jersey out of the girl :)



    - so with me being sick now ya think i would just stay inside ? .. nope hahaha well this morning i pulled the parts that i painted last night outside in the hot sun trying to bake them, i clear coated the tank,forks and wheels, pulled the frame outside and did a finaly coat there were some light spots that i couldnt see in the garages poor lighting, i also have been soaking the hand grips for a day didnt really do to much but hey oh well , and im thinking about laying a clear on the frame says you cant do that after a hour of shooting a color down or wait 48 hrs ....

    might put a skim coat of bondo on the handle bars , and hopefully tomorrow i can cut the aluminum out for the wheel discs
