Couldn't help but poke a stick at ya!! I already knew that answer! That decal looks schweet on the tank. Is that a slight speckling effect in the paint or was it just me eyes?

Can't wait to see the finished product. I have a couple parts bikes and plan to do something special with one when I have the chance and more free time. Have both my parents living with us now, so alot of time is spent taking care of them. They celebrated their 64th anniversary this past Friday. Married in 1949.

BTW...hope your parents are doing better...I did that thing for em....

And ya, the paint is a black metalflake...the pics dont do it justice...it a beautifull paint for rattlecan...(Rustoleum) "Black Night" to be exact....

http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=30

...4 coats of the black, sanding after each (wet 1500 on the final), then 2 coats clear, then the decal, and 2 more coats of clear...it really pops in person in natural sunlight...and the clear brings out the sparkle and black more, deepening it....took me all winter in the living room to do this, but well worth the effort, IMO !!!

Rattlecan works...as long as you prep right and take the time to sand and do it proper...I also prepped all with a self-etching primer...VERY important...

I may have it all together by week's end to take a full pic....may need to ask Jack to use his cam...mine sucks...5mp Gateway that took great pics the first 6 mos, now constant errors, etc...Gateway sucks armadillo roadkill...

Appreciate that. They are fading. More noticeable right now with my mother as she is having difficulty using the rights words to express her thought. She doesn't really notice unless you repeat back to her and ask her what she meant. But you can tell the confusion level is rising. Sleeping more too. Dad seems to be having to concentrate more and think about what he is doing, like walking... Gait is weak at times. Seems like he forgets what next action step is... raise right foot forward, etc.

I definitely have to keep that color as a reference for when I update mine. I like the effect with the sunlight hitting it. Not too much, it seems, but just enough glimmer up close. Will have to check all their color range. I'd really like a darker emerald green. Thought that could look nice.

Funny you should mention the green...I seriously thought about a 2-tone with a similar green metallic, separated by a red pinstripe.
Bretheren...Mine's actually gonna look a lot like the bike in my sig....besides the headlight and fork chrome...
