I got the local sign painter to make me up a Yamaha graphic from a digital file that I shamelessly appropriated... this blue is a little off, so he is re-doing it in a better-matching color, but this was son Will's request:



Once we got that figured out, it was time to wetsand and clearcoat the bare-metal tank and the rattlecan Rustoleum, with remarkably good results!



...as a matter of fact, I ended up rubbing the gloss down with some rubbing compound, as it was just too freekin' shiny
