  • So i just got home from the painters...

    I had a rough idea about what i wanted(GSXF templates & KR 4tw )



    So after getting press ganged for pics in the shoutbox, i had to snap off a few quickies



    Even this turned out better than expected, unfortunately my camera sucks @ low light levels and the RL effect is much more dramatic.
    I'll try my dads camera during the weekend, maybe it'll do better

      Is that glitter that you put in the paint?

        Naw, it's what was leftover when I sent my sisters make-up kit to the "Will it blend guy"


        Added it to the clear coat on top of a black base, the silver parts of the bike is this flake + some generic silver flake leftovers the painter had lying around(the combo took a bit of the edge off).
        Tried a sample with 100% coverage and it was just way too mardi gras for me

        The glow effect is Europium-doped Strontium Aluminate in clear coat on top of a white background.
        It should have a lifespan of around 6-10 years since it's in a UV protective solvent based clear.

        Just finished installing new LED instrument lighting & xenon light, more pics coming during the weekend
