Eeeh well, some pics taken with a high quality digital camera and with a clean background would do the trick.

There are plenty pics in this topic with a clean background but I guess it's never good enough. I especially "like" your "I can do a better job" attitude :roll:

Yup, we followed the same procedure with both the "Iggy & The Stooges" fixie and the "Rock 'n Roll Sweetheart" geared bike: professional primer and white paint by Brady van Dalen (www.specialpaintwork.nl), then the artwork using acrylic paint and markers, then back to Brady for several clear coats. Could have gone for an additional sanding of the frame followed by more clear coats but she was already over her budget and this can be done at a later stage as well. It does however explain the rough appearance of the tubes.
