Default Im Back - Project Budget Dragqueen

Back again guys n gals. Ive not been on for a year or so. I have a good excuse...................well an excuse of sorts.

Been trying to get my business built up. Been airbrushing non stop for seemingly ever to improve my work n gain a good reputation. Getting there now tho with work coming in from all over the world which is cool.

Got a bit of free time on my hands these days tho so gonna get my arse in gear n get back on ere more often.

Most of yer will know me for my airbrushing work, or my 2 fighters in SF mag recently.

Moved onto a new project now too. A turbo 750 bandit dragbike on a serious budget (160 so far). I`ll post pics n build thread if folk interested enuf. First bit of build diary Ive been running ere if wanna catch up:-

Good to see you back, Harris.

Just been having a look at your latest project and it's going to look stunning when it's finished. My hat is duly doffed in you direction, Sir.

Been a long slog working with zero dosh n some bloody rough parts as folk can see if read through OSS thread. Really is a case of polishing a turd this one when you see what I started with. Reckon its coming on well tho.

Nother wee bitty tonight. Got frame insert panels by headstock done n clear coated, and 2K blacked the headlights bracket and tax disc holder as both scabby looking. Gives me a chance to solder up the indicator wires while all apart again tho. lol.

Took a few pictures with both flash on n flash off as couldnt get right light for pics. Final look is somewhere in middle in daylight. lol.







I`ll get the infil panels sanded/polished n front end back together tomorrow night hopefully.

First picture shows how I manage to get so much done after work when I cant be arsed. Helpful wife! Lol.

There appear to be too bad a bike lined up n know Dominate lights mounted behind the visor. Unable to get a better understanding of form, etc. until the lights are mounted on a solid brackets in front of some one-off, but this is the list to make soon.
