Gavin's bike hates me. It must. There's no other explanation for the amount of time and trouble this bike has taken to paint.

If it's not my fault, it's the temperature, or the color, or the sanding, or my gun spattering, or paint spilling... Yesterday I even got my socks stuck to my feet because I put my socks on after painting and apparently there was overspray on my feet!

So the first coat of clear is complete, sanding and all. It looks great, and I am confident the finish will be smooth as glass. Just two (or three) more coats... with sanding in between... and the pinstripe... and polishing...

Yeah, this is taking forever. Quality work usually does.
