Flaking the Bagger

Rob's bagger is undergoing the Kustombart treatment.
After welding some holes in the fenders from the access trim and lights and fixing some holes in the 'glass bags, I got to flaking.

First an orangey-gold base kolor.
Then 4 layers of Metalflake Micro Gold flakes.
Now wait for it to dry and add some more clear.
I only flaked certain parts of the tins, cause the rest will be black. The panels will be gold flake with black Vreeble on top!

Strip her down naked and bring her to me...

While Tjeerd is in Japan visiting the Yokohama Hotrod show (again), chopping still goes on in the Kustom Korner.

Stripping Rob's bagger for paint and some small modifications.
Tjeerd already put on some fishtail pipes for a mock-up. We also stripped all the extra lights and a lot of chrome to get a cleaner look. The cardboard seat pan was my idea, it will extend all the way up to the cover over the fuel cap. Of course, Marcel from Miller Kustom Upholstery will make the actual seat cover.

After stripping, the thing look like a wet cat, all skin & bones.
