Paint in the Works

I've been working on two paintjobs lately. One for Tjeerd and another XS650.
I painted the tins a Honda metallic black with a gold shine. The panels feature a gold pearl basecoat, lightly dusted with a green pearl, covered by a 50-50 mixture of Kelly Green and Gold Metalfale Glowble flakes.
I painted the Short-Cut logo in Seagreen Kandy, outlined by the same pearl gold I used under the flakes. The panels were also outlined in gold.
Then I shaded the outlines and logo, to get more depth and contrast.

Now I have to polish it and the bike will be ready for the Hotdog and Beer party, oktober 1st at the Kustom Korner, come check it out!

I have also been busy with a Triumph. The owner modified the tank and built the ass part from scratch. The paint was inspired upon a Triumph record breaker called "The devil's Arrow". 

I promised the owner not to reveal too much of the paintjob but it has a very fine silver metallic base, with a custom-mixed Kandy red (brick red with some gold). It has scallops and they will be finished with a black outline and a satin gloss topcoat.

That's al for now, dont forget the Hotdog & Beer party next saturday!

Buy it now!

All good things must come to an end. I have enjoyed my Custom Van "Green Machine" for more than 2 years now. I have had many repairs in the beginning and lots of fun after that.

It is just about finished now, so it's time to move on to a new project: the Tatra Aircooled V8 Ledsled.

I need time and cash for that, so I'm selling my beloved Van! Check out the evilbay auction here. Happy bidding!
