    Got my bro's breakout in the shed for a custom paint job. their was still a full tank fuel so i thought id take it for a ride to drain the tank rather then tip it out. So i grabed an old helmet that i had laying around and took it over to a mates for something to paint at a paint jam he was having over at his shed the other week. Thought it could do with a bit of a custom look to take the attention away from all the scratchers
    This is what i came up with

    Thanks for the comments:

    Squishy I've only got the one friend that paints, he's the one that got me into airbrushing and striping. Been trying to get other I know to pickup the airbrush but no one seems keen except my 7 year old daughter who loves to hang out with dad and tinker in the garage. I'll start a thread of the Honda Z50 we are customising together once we get to the painting stage.

    Nice! That's cool that you have someone to paint with. None of my friends paint or have an interest to. But I love the idea of a paint jam session too.
    Hey get that daughter of yours painting with the AB now. She'll be 100 times better than any of us by the time she grows up. I wish I did. :)

    Yep definately good to have a buddy to paint with, he's been at it for years and is always happy to give advice to help me along.
    My little girl has done her own t shirt already (a yo she from Mario Bros) with a little help from dad when I get a chance I'll put up a picture. I'll have to buy her her own eclipse to start getting into it.

    That's great! I bet she's real proud of it too. Can't wait to see it. If she has an interest in the art, please do encourage her. And the best part is, she will have some real quality dad time. :)

    When my brother was up visiting from North Carolina, I had my niece behind the brush and she loved it. But, she's too far away and, being in high school, has too many other activities for her to continue with it.

    Deffently love striping doesn't come with all the preparation hassles that come with airbrushing, but it's just as hard and requires a lot of practice to be any good, one day maybe I might get their
    @CALz AyrWKz here's a picture of my little girl modelling her yoshi shirt: (dad did the crapy outline and cut the stencil. Zoey did all the colour.

    She did a great job, wish I had started when I was young, I might be good at it by now lol. One of my biggest regrets is that I wasted so much time talking about wanting to learn to AB rather than doing it. Your little star will soon be overtaking us all :)
