Decided to scratch a 'headlight' for this thing. What a chore...trying to simulate a halogen shop light. Inside is lined with metallic tape, and a large diameter fiber optic used for the bulb. Once the paints on, and the mask is off, should look decent.

First, a base of rusty brown:
Then I painted the rear fins a white/flat aluminum mix:
Salt was next, followed by red on the bars, black on the frame, and a mid grey everywhere else:
Decals, designed and printed this afternoon.....at...work:
Couldn't resist trying to get one of them on tonight:
Obviously still a ton to do. I think I'll go back in with red and sponge the frame. Same for the engine and other 'chrome' parts. The rest of the painting will have to be by brush and try to get different shades of aluminum on the bars and rods.
ONE QUESTION: What color should I paint the rotors?

No, thank you! That is one of the coolest ideas I've ever seen. Bravo.

Curtis, thank you sir.
Derrick, same to you. Appreciate it.
Well another couple of hours at the bench tonight. Last night, honestly, was one of those nights when things just seem to go badly. Not sure why...just 2nd guessing my 'order of operations'. I usually get that way on the first 'paint day'...
Tonight though...pure fun.
Here's where she's at. Lots left to do. Kinda regret gluing everything up...hard to paint. I might have to pop off the battery to detail and wire that. We'll see.
