Sunshine state is coming thru. Regardless, it's not hot enough. Gimme 100 degrees & 100% humidity. Fuck it. I'll sweat forever.

I'd be happy if it was upper 70s / low 80s all the time. Perfect riding weather :banger:

Slow and steady work over here! Just got both wheels taken off, stripped the plastidip on the rear, hope to get some sanding done and fresh black paint on both sometime this week since I'm off all week. Once they're all painted then I should have some more design action being done, I'll make sure to share some pictures once I get that started!

I think I'm gonna wait till summer to install the driveface, especially if I need to retune for a new exhaust. Still having some trouble finding one though since I was burned on that first one :meh:

Painting process went smoothly! Got everything sanded/primed/ and sprayed all today and I'm very happy with how it turned out! Granted on the rear wheel there were some run marks, but I think once I do my design on it you won't even notice it. Pretty stoked for how this is going to turn out!! :banger:

Sanded/primed/painted all in oneday?! Dude slow it down and the end result will be better(not that its bad now. )You have awesome artistic skills, painting the wheels is your canvas, don't rush it dom!

Correction: I got most of the sanding done Monday, then Tuesday I primed and painted. Just went off of what the back of the can said to do, and I think it turned out pretty good haha looks better in person. If needed / if I feel like it, I'll probably wet sand the wheels with some high grit sandpaper to see if it gets rid of the drips. Also it'd probably help the paint pen stick along with the clear after...yeah I'll probably sand it lightly. For this being my third time doing something legit with spray paint (first being minibike and second being ruck frame) I think it was the best result of those three. :meh:

Tried to fix the paint. Fucked it up. Dont think it's that big of a deal since I can cover up the shitty spots with the design I'm thinking of doing. Also sanded down some of the design on the BB to fix up some ugly areas. Now to order some paint pens and get to work!

List so I don't forget to order something:
- Paint Pens
- Lug nuts
- Handlebar Grips
- Drum adapter
