I was told I don't write enough on here, so I'll start rambling every now and then just to amuse my friends and keep people up to date on what I've been doing.

Right now I'm in the process of painting Gavin's motorcycle. It took forever to just get started. First there was cleanup, then repair work, then sanding, then more repair and more sanding. It seems the previous owner had completely rashed the side of the bike and had spray painted it to camoflage the damage.

Once it was ready, there was the issue of choosing a color. Gavin knew what he wanted, it was just a matter of finding paint to recreate what was in his head. Samples were ordered, test patches were sprayed, and we were on our way!

Now that I'm actually spraying paint, I feel like I'm making real progress. All the prep work was monotonous, but it really has worked out well - you can't see ANY signs of damage.

Pay no attention to the brightness of the orange. It's just a base color, and will be toned down to a deep copper onec I'm done. Can you believe this section was rashed and pushed in a half inch at the bolt hole?!?!
