Yeah! sexy aint't ?
The Red Hunter Red will go onto the tank after the bottom is fixed in place and the inside gets a extra coating to make it all extra-extra resistant to today's 'green' fuels.
From the seats nose I will cover the top of the tank and have the red running down at the front like the thirties tanks.
Knee area and the sides to the front where the Ariel roundel goes stay carbon
I am thinking about a 22K gold leaf lining on the edge of the Red, I have some booklets with leaves left over from a plating job.
I have to find out what kind of (two pack) clear lacker I will have to use to stick the gold on.
Then the whole tank gets a coat of clear (that sadly dulls out the gold a bit but it will look better then with brass based 'gold' paint.)
Or is that over the top? (ha,ha!)
See this nice YouTube pinstriping, One line .....well o.k. , I might be able to get one line on a tank but it wont meet at the other end !! the second thinner line he pulls right next to it, AMAZING http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJjJd5yHDY0
