    Twas destiny to find a guard to match your sprocket size. Unfitting when it doesn't:p

    Match the fender...that's the safe play tho:wink1:

    It's the same here in Poland - Rain, rain, rain, rain and again RAIN o_O

    That chainguard is sweet - I would lean to two options - chrome with ratina or rim color with ratina.

    I'm nestled amongst the pines for 3 days on our Memorial Day holiday weekend. Peaceful, relaxing, needed.

    Before I left the city, however, I met up with Justin my soon to be step-grandson-in-law. He works for a custom design company as a welder and machinist.

    I had sent him a design a couple weeks ago, and he brought it to fruition. Even picked some 'pre-rusted' stock, just for me.

    Flame on! RaT oN~!

    Got home late yesterday from the lake, and muster-ed up the energy for some RaT-ina work at the BACK40 paint stump.

    After tallying the votes on the 'chain guard color poll', it came out 2 for frame color, 2 for fender color, 1 wheel color, and 1 black.

    I went for the fender match, with RaT-ina. Here are a few step by step photos, same process as the frame.

    What I started with, the black Manhattan. Which, come to think of it, would be a great name for a late-afternoon-beverage...

    First coat is the Rustoleum Rust Primer red, followed by some Cinnamon highlighting.

    Then apply the mustard where I want the RusTina to show through, and then paint immediately over with the top coat.

    I used the Rustoleum Hammered paint, a VERY light coating from about 4 feet away, otherwise this particular paint gets really heavy.

    And the results. I'll probably add some Rustoleum Multicolor Texture today to bring out the rusty brown hues.

    The guard looks good, I like how the slots are parallel with the middle bar in the frame!

    Got in just a couple minutes in the BACK40 before work at the bike shop tonight. Added some of my favorite RusT-ification with the Rustoleum Multi-Texture paint to some of the chrome and shiny parts on the bike. Brown rust works well on those silver tones.

    Just wondering how the mustard trick works? (Apologies if it's been explained before) Does the topcoat not stick to the mustard and then reveals the primer coat beneath? Another tutorial I must search out.

    The topcoat sticks to the mustard, but the mustard doesn't stick to the previous primer coat. So when I use the garden hose (didn't mention that I guess in the chain guard steps) in a fine concentrated stream, I hose off the mustard, carrying the top coat with it, and revealing the primer and cinnamon colors underneath.
    Click on this link ^ to the post I made about doing the frame in the same way.
