hahahah .... Sepias... I didn't do the patch work.. a friend did.. I just did the rest ;)

sonic :twofinger it's a garage not a family room :p

couldn't wait to get rid of that junk plastic that was on there from the salvage place :D (good thing it was trashed before I went down with it LOL) some of it is still usable for stunters though :thumb: other parts will get thrown up on ebay for sure...

hahaa... well the other 3 walls have wood tongue and groove slats up and trimmed out... just never felt the need to paint the drywall :p instead I paint my bike ;) It sure was nice having the heat in there too for doing it.. started out in the pole barn but quickly moved into the garage :laughing:

the bike is looking good. Off topic, my parents bought their house brand new 16 years ago and the garage still has that unpainted drywall up!

-=bmacd=-
yeah I keep attempting to do it but something else always comes up.. but hey.. who knows maybe now that I got the bike done I can put that on my next list of things to do :p

OK.. here are some pics of her (without a clear coat - no time to do that since I'll be leavin Thursday for the track with her)

I used Avery SemiGloss Sticker Paper and cut out my stars and "DreamRyder" and used Blue Painters tape to mask off the areas I wanted to keep white and then painted my Red and Blue areas. So everthing that you see white is paint - NO DECALS ;)

I really like the way it turned out... I really liked the way the seat had looked with the tape on it and being red and white to match the tail section so I may at some point go back and do the seat... but again I only had a week to get her done :eek:

I was hopin for the 80/80 quality from a spray can.. but honestly I think I got a 20/20 :D (looks good from 20 feet going 20 mph) :laughing:
