Project Destined to Fail just keeps on surprising me, on two fronts. One, the speed in which it’s progressing and two, how excited I am getting. Over the years I have been around other peoples projects whether it was car audio cars at SLAP, show cars when I worked for Autosalon, or now at STM where our workshop is filled with peoples performance projects every single day. Even after all that I didn’t know what it felt like to have a project that I, myself could personally get excited about.
After sanding the original paint back, I asked Bruce to throw a coat of primer on the frame, fork and handle bars. I dropped around to his place to give them a wet sand and watch him put the colour and clear on. I’m really happy with my colour choice and Bruce did a great job applying it.
My girlfriend G also got her bike painted.
I think that is the hard part over. Now I have to find a bunch of parts for it. Easy right?
