Great Work Todd, and thanx for the extra shots. I hear people say "Aaaaah, I know a guy that will paint your car for $500. Why spend thousands"
You have to wet sand it back down to remove the dirt/dust, remove "orange peel", leveling the surface to a glass smoothness, and bring out the depth. And then buff it back to an intense gloss using sucessively finer rubbing compounds. This takes much more time and effort than the prepping and painting itself. Yours came out awesome! That is a shop quality job you achieved there. Can't wait to see it assembled in the sun.

Default Had a Toyota moment 2 days ago.....

So about 2 days ago I got the Vulcan out for the first ride of the season. Immediately upon hitting the road I experienced out of control acceleration. The thing just would not slow down! I wondered if there might be some kind of mechanical or electronic defect causing a life threatening condition.

I quickly realized that it had more to do with my defective right wrist (and the big, dumb *** grin on my face) than the bike (just a willing accomplice).

Over the next few days the effect has diminished a bit, but not much
