finally the tins are done, wow what a pita, i turned out to be for my paint man ,lol, these are unbelievable ,in a nutshell ,silver base ,airbrush work ,then candy blue followed by black stripes ,then the striped where sprayed with chromed and brushed ,some shadow airbushing along the stripes ,and clear clear clear im sure ive over simpafied this cos my man nearlly went round the twist doing it ,the effect is a nice paint job ,then take it out in the sun and bam the chrome stripes pop out from under neath and are blinding, i am so pumped with these , i was inspired by the orange tins done for the k,c rally a few years ago , and helped by a certain member on how to achieve this effect , ,secondly how sick is that front guard , a special bit of work by jsc ,in the fibre glass department ,its the front of the stock fender and the front is on the back as well with a few inches added to the lower end ,the first one twisted and jeff stepped up and did another one ,FREE of charge this one went a bit screwy, but we worked out a fix and how freaking good does it look ,i love how we got the original bracket to match , also a big thankyou to ray for the great tins he did fantastic deal for me on , i got a great price on the wholepaint job ,,and the painter was happy to see the end of them ,lmao have a close look at the vrod logo on the side and u can see his name tucked in there very nicely ,next week i get my seat back for the 4 th time and hopefully my custom lowered dx bracket will be painted and ready to go on as well

Wow, an absolute beauty.

I know my front fender takes alot of stone chips from rad backsplash , with yours longer it might take even more. Thats the worst thing of new paint I guess, always seeing the first scratch
