ok so here are a few better pic's..Im going to work on the green when I get home later..
ok here we go,,I have to say this is one of the best looking bikes i have ever seen...I just got on the hunter green paint and now i have to let it set for a few days,then wet sanding and clear coat...I found if i put a de humidifier in the room it helps to dry better..
please post what you think>>>>>>>>>>>
Ithink that's lookin' sharp man! Originally I was pulling for green with almond accens, but you've changed my mind. Is that green metallic? Did you end up using tractor paint? If not, what did you use? I really like it, especially the accents on the chainguard and rear rack. Again, nice work.
I love this bike,to bad I have to give it away..lol.
the only thing i have ti do is fix a few spots around the head tube.wet sand the hole thing then clear coat and buff it out..
when i get home i will tell you the paint i used,,,I did put the cans in worm water to make it spray better,,,
looks good. nice job on the masking. I really like the chainguard

im going to the junk yard to get a old caddy badge and a small chrome Cadillac lettering to put on the chain guard.
im also looking for a caddy hood ornament to go on the front finder...
I will have to try that, as we have local worm farms here.
What would Jesus ride???
dude brian the bike is lookin sweet bro!! you did a really good job on the paint as well and the masking looks good. youve inspired me to try a two tone paint job on one of my next builds!
ITS NOT EASY BEIN EASY...but somebodys gotta do it!!!
here is the thing,,put the can in warm water=it helps thin the paint,
use a tack cloth-use a tack cloth
use a little lacquer thinner before each coat of paint and give it time to dry...not alot just a little on the clean rag
and pay the most for your tape,and when you put the tape down run you finger along the edge for a good stick
also after you spray give the paint a little time to tack up then pull off the tape..
o and also when you tape put your edge on the top when you mask.if anyone has any questions on this just ask me..ill explain
it make it much easier and cleaner,,,no smudges.
this is my first paint job and my first 2 tone paint job.
