I cant claim the idea as entirely original. It all started when I realized first hand how much it costs to replace plastics. At the time I wanted to get into stunting, so my idea was to cover the fairins with a plastic screen (kind of like chickenwire) and then cover the whole thing with at least 1/8" bedlines. This arrangement should add a great deal of strength to the fairings. While discussing the idea online, one of the members Izzy, mentioned that he has done a bike in bedliner. We met up a few weeks later, and I was not too impressed. It was too black, and not nearly shiney enough for me at the time. Time has passed, my stunt ambitions lessened, and I found I can save myself some money by buying used plastics. They often come in the wrong color, so paint was still necessary. I had the perfect paintjob in mind, Large red hammer and sicles (I'm originally russian). I know a guy who owns a paintshop, and he did me a deal, that if I do the sanding, he would paint it for pretty cheap. So I got to sanding, only to find out later, that the paint guy cant do artwork. He recommended a vinyl. The vinyl place was happy to print something, but they needed a picture, which I didnt have (I'm not all that artistic either), so they recommended air brushing. The airbrush guy said he would do it for pretty cheap, but then started going off on exactly what kind of paint needs to be on the bike and how the paint guy is trying to screw me. So the two of them are having a professional dick whipping contest with me as the massanger, and the price of this project is steadily increasing. After a little while, I've had it with both of them, so I went and picked up a can sprayed and old broken fairing I had, liked the result and painted the rest of the bike. Since then I've had mostly compliments, with a few dislikes mostly from proffessional paint guys.
Nice dog you got there. Scary thought that mine will get to that size and might surpass it (its a male). Its my first dane, and my first dog since I've started living on my own. I've heard so many rumors of danes being agressive, and was very glad to find quiet the opposite to be true. They do however get playfull, and that in itself can be a problem.
