    yum!
    I just been 2k clearing a Honda 900 Fireblade Urban Tiger tank after I have painted the bike on his tank. Looks damn shiny. Gotto wait till tomorrow til rock hard then I'll cut and polish him. Could have done a lot more with it but it was the first real doodling on a tank that I have done and the fact I didn't have a micron then. The only tank I have done before was to repair a Suzuki 200 tank and paint it factory blue, but instead of putting stickers on it , I stenciled the logo on him. It looked nice but slight orange peel and he said he was happy with it and leave it like that. Will put up some pics when I have buggered it up. :)

    Is there no way of hiding the cut with a highlight or something?

    There too deep,thought about sanding the area back down but it would be a p.i.t.a. to match

    Spray white and hope candy bleeds? Just a thought..... From the master of disaster! A 5/0 brush maybe?

    Best to do what you think best dude. If you don't like it the customer or whatever ain't gonna like it either. I'm never happy with any of my stuff but I've had a bollocking for being to fussy. All experience in the pot hey.... Oh well start again, but be careful next time or there will be trouble...... :-(

    Very cool BP! The fire has a really ferocious feel to it. That’s great on something that will be moving.

    The tank was looking really good, shame you couldn't repair the cut marks. Still it's looking good again with the flame job. Second time round, no frisket or knives near lol. For future reference if you want some premixed crystal fx fluid Mick Neill in Walsall, Birmingham sells it..

    http://www.mickneill.com/ice-crystal-fx-1000ml-1486-p.asp

    He does lots of other stuff too inc water based and solvent paints Andy I believe he is also doing some solvent striping paint for those into striping who want to clearcoat afterwards. I've yet to try it but it's only because I haven't had time to pop and see him. He's only 10 minutes away from me so very handy to know him.

    @Malky he does com-art too. Might have to give him a call for bigger bottles but I'm almost certain he can get them from iwata/madea.

    I love motorbikes, so any art painting on tanks or such parts is gathering my attention ;)
    Your custom painting is looking very good, I wish I was the bike’s owner ;)
