    Can't wait to build these...

    I never cared about looks over function. I usually just use my toys without regard for how they look like or how I look like in them. I made an exception. I painted them myself!

    From these:

    To these:

    I can't wait to build them.

    Wow! Would love to see more shots of these -- side view, closeups, etc. Also interested in how you prepped the ti and what type of pain you used...

    Thanks!

    To prep the TI, I hand brushed it using Scotch-Brite 7447 pads, then use SEM etching primer. Base coats are black and white from Ppg. One of the bike has a gloss finish using Transtar Kwik Gloss Urethane top coat and the other bike has matte finish from UreKem.

    Below are some more pics. Since I will keep these bikes forever, I had my name immortalized under the top coat . Sorry for digitizing them in the pics.

    This one is starting to get built up now:
