Beautiful job! I absolutely LOVE that blue color...damn.
Thanx Bro....I stayed away from the red flames because red to me screams....LOOK AT ME!!! Which is cool if you want your paint to be the main attraction but...I have spent way to much on chrome for that...wanted it to work with it as opposed to agin it.

 :agree: your bike was sick before this transformation.  All the tins look great, the rear's my fav.  What was the turn around time for this level of work? Was the design all yours?  Great look!

I love the color!!!  It sets the skull and flame look off marvelously.  Can't wait to see pics of it all back together.

Tony over at Sinister says he hates to sit on jobs and I believe it...the turn around time was....I mailed him the tins the week before x-mas and I might have them back next Friday....and you have to keep in mind he is a family man and the x-mas and new years holiday were in that mix. My gal is down for the winter anyway...now was the perfect time.
 I wish I could take credit for the whole design...how it worked was...I gave him a basic idea of what I was looking for and how I saw it flowing with the bike then e-mailed him a side pic of my gal.....the next day he e-mailed me back a pic of what his minds eye thought I was looking for photoshoped on my tank of the pic I sent him...then you go back and forth with modifications of the design till you get exactly what you want. After that long winded answer...I would say that we both came up with the final product.
I am also installing a set of KGlow LED lights to highlite the engine and rims....just enought to highlite it..........not to look like a redneck x-mas tree.

Got same bad news ... your paint job will scream "Look at me" ...  ;D
The brilliant blue onto of the black pops ... not in a bad way mind you. I love the black and blue color combo.
