    I based the frame with a flat white then sprayed rattle can flake blue down. I then buried it with a glaze clear and let it sit for a few days. After that I laid down more clear and sanded with 1500 and polished!

    I decided to make a stick shift style brake lever for my front drum brake. I love the look! 66556FED-DEDA-4F16-B5C4-A4307322733D.jpeg

    Wrapped the bars and I hate the color. Doesn’t match the blue of the frame. DBC6A451-6BA5-414C-8683-3617E949E795.jpeg

    Those bars with the white seat though, will tie the frame in nicely. The wrap job is stellar!

    Those frame tubes look downright Seuss-ian!
