A tip to help with oversized pics: use the [RIMG] tag instead of [IMG] and it'll automatically resize them for you. It's on the second row of tags.

painted seat frame.

im really proud of this one.....radiator cover totally recycled. the round aluminum part came from some veggie steamer and the "scoop" (brass, tin, i dunno?) came from an electronic organ. it reflected the light of bulbs mounted underneath. a little imagination ya dig?

Image

and here we are for now

ragtopping it while i paint the battery box up

base coat rattle can then i use these things we call ''paint pens'' but the package says ''painters''. they come 5 to a pack for like $9 u.s. at walmart. ive been using these things for about 15 years on canvas, plastic, leather, and metal. theyre fantastic. at some point more photos of my jacket will end up on here and its a testament to the longevity and versatility of those pricey little bastards.

i got t-bonered feb 18th by a tahoe on my way to school. im in junior college working towards an aas in ''electronic technology'' at the moment. i was making a left turn on a two lane road and somebody felt like they were too ''better than everybody else'' and decided to pass the stopped vehicles in front of them. end result being a wicked broken lower leg. i got a great attitude about life so its basically nbd. it sucks but it happened. not much to do about it but get better and keep improving myself.
tl;dr
a couple weeks ago. yeah, im gettin swole.
