    I can't believe how smooth you get your paint with a brush.

    Don't tell the Mythbusters... They might want to crash it, blow it up, or run over it.

    It's much too beautiful for that.

    Thanks for the props again on the custom color. I'm still gearing up for the second version of Springer that I'm considering using that color on. :) 

    Thanks for the compliments on my paint apps guys! Yes, KYQ, this is the product of using paintbrushes. My customs work to date has been nearly 99% from paintbrushes alone. Wet sanding also is very integral to making the final product very smooth. This custom probably has nearly 15 coats on him, with a sanding job in between each coat. There is always a slight visible remainder of paintstrokes, but not to the touch :) 

    Well, my payment for this piece was actually a MIB Camshaft. I think the client got a good deal :) 

    . . . and that's a valuable Camshaft for me :lol 

    Customs and coughdrops . . . what a combo! Whodathunkit? :lol 

    Thanks for all of the comments and interaction guys; it's always much appreciated :thumb

    Hehe, I remember telling you about struggling through midterms and finals and being able to work on it! :lol 

    I smell finals in the air once again too . . . :cry 

    Thanks for the props buddy!

    Thanks a lot man! I always strive for the best work on my own things, but the few times I've done TF commission work, I really set the bar higher for myself. Your comment means a lot in that regard :) 

    Thanks buddy! One of the most fun parts about this custom was making that shade of metallic green to be just right :)
