I'm still working on the painting of my project. I have the base color on the frame, fork, and all the pieces. I have the woodgraining airbrushed on all the pieces, the fork and all of the frame except the chainstays. I hope to finish up the airbrushing all the woodgrain tonight. Then I'll tape off the lettering to shadow it in like it's carved into the wood. Then of course I'll have to put on the Clearcoat. I'm going to use a flat clear on it. I'll try to post some new pictures tomorrow. My Di2 stuff came in Tuesday, except the front derailleur, which is on back-order. Hope it shows up soon.

I've been hard at it, airbrushing for about a week on this thing, but I've finally almost finished painting. I put the final flat Clearcoat on this morning. All that's left to be painted are the Bottle Cages. As you can see I did a woodgrain paint job with Dovetails at the joints and I'll call it Carved Lettering. Still waiting on my front derailleur, they're on backorder everywhere.

Creative paint job. The wood grain is cool, but I'm not sure about the tribal additions. Nonetheless...stoked to see the outcome!

In the CARBON FIBER ERA, some lunatic (like possibly everyone here) comes with a WOOD "KICKASS" CUSTOM PAINT JOB and broke the whole chain apart.

THAT's an AWSOME JOB Paul, can't wait to see It finished! I'm sharing your project on the Brazilian Weight Weenies forum! HERE: http://www.weightweenies.com.br/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1821

KEEP THE AWSOME JOB!!!
