I just have to get off my butt and finish the wiring and Pedro is done.

No idea how I am going to get a decent photo of it though, need sun shine to show the paint, but then it has glare issues due to the shininess...

Done and posted in the finished area!

Still want some better pics and a video or two, but that is a huge load off my mind!

Way to go Luke! I wonder if some artificial light added to the natural outdoor light would give enough of an affect to show the paint off without glare? Just heading to your finished bike thread now, so maybe that's what you have already done....

Just saw your finished post. Great video, I think it captures the paint and the entire build well.

Thanks OJ! It is interesting that the paint flashes as the video moves away and out of focus and goes dull when it is looking straight at it...

I'll have both done. The Spyder is easy. I just need to put it together after the paint cures. The Slingshot is waiting on the chain guard. Worst comes to worst I'll just submit without it and be very upset about it.

Maybe it'll be a Christmas miracle, and you'll get your guard in time.
