Where you been hiding then? 70's style chops, diggers etc. have been everywhere for the last few years. Show's, mags and stuff obv. you don't see a lot parked outside of Sainsbury's granted

Nearly as hip as cafe racers so expect hyowge price tags.

True there is a resurgence of 60,70,and 80s style choppers etc, but you only ever see them at shows or in magazines, the difference is i actually used to ride mine.

Gee, how long does it take to form the images as you layer/spray the paint? And do you have to leave it to cure/dry between colours?

I would guess it printed onto an acetate or similar thin clear sheet and then embedded in the lacquer....but does the colour suffer in the UV of the sunlight and fade over time?

Not as easy as you think good luck, a lot of spraying and murging in the picture with the tank , you will need photo exspess to miniplate the picture, and a air brush, plus the colour of your tank to bring the picture into play
