    I got some filler on, used a new quart of bondo for first round and then will use the rage for feather fill.I like to add some fiberglass resin to make my filler self level a little. I added about 2 OZ to the quart of bodo. I ended up going with a dual spring mount and single shock attached to the swingarm, it resembles the original servi-car look a little more.I have had to remake damn near every piece 3 times on this to get it just right.

    I'm with you there. My favorite paintjobs have been the ones I did randomly and on the fly. The ones I've thought about for months I've hated.

    Had to put it together to look at the lines again.I got it knocked down ready for lines so it looks grayish right now.I have used JobLine epoxy primer, base ,and clear all to there specs and got Kandy concentrate to add to clear.I think the brandywine will make it look more sexy than funky we shall see.

    If not sure yet, you could shoot a scrap car hood to see how your result will really look.

    Why wonder when you can see it in person next to your trike?

    I ran tape lines for two hours and only confused myself, I'm going to have to run large scale sample for sure.Car hoods are a solid plan.

    Here is the start, this was about 5 hours of work to get these lines and airbrushing done.I bet another 5, then 5 hours on Kandy/lines.The area I'm pointing at is going to be re designed.
