Looking for New Tins

Hi Folks
I'm interested in buying another set of tins to paint them. I thought I had seen people with bikes they were parting out, but can't seem to find them.If you have a front fender, rear fender, side covers or tank you want to sell,let me know.
Thanks

Ok Folks
So far I have gotten the rear fender with tail light assembly, front fender and side covers, still looking for a gas tank. Anyone got one they want to part with? ........ Been pulling my hair out for the last week, trying to learn how to airbrush. My nephew was suppose to do this, but 2 hrs with the thing and he hasnt been back. One thing for sure, I know im not an artist LOL ... Ill get it though. At least Ill have used tins to ruin.

Airbrush is HARD. Main reason I quit art school! I blew at it.

Doing OK with the rattlecans, though.

Spare tins rule. Best way to get them that I've found is eBay and Craigslist. Best if you do it in the winter. Right now prices are higher. I have 2 complete sets of tins and 3 tanks. Of course 2 of them leak...

I actually just bought a Sharpe spray gun used for cheap this weekend. Going to finish the rattlecan project and then do my other set with the gun. I have no doubt that what I learned here will make the next ones turn out way better.

I've found I only really learn by making my own mistakes. You can tell me the right thing to do, but I won't really internalize it and KNOW it until I screw up the thing it applies to and then I'll remember. It's just how my brain is. I have to get hands on and mess it up. I can't just memorize rules.
