The check & model's release better be in the mail.
If there is one thing I have learned throughout this process it is this: Check your respirator for spiders before you put it on.

Hi everyone,

I decided to spice up the bike a bit this summer and paint it with plastidip.
I used a lot of white coats to mask the black.
Then I used 5 coats of neon orange and I ended up with 2 light coats of gold metallizer.

I like it that way as much as when it was all black.
Sometimes I just need more color in my life!

Cheers
