Brutale Project nearly complete

As many of you know I am working on getting a nice HID projector mounted behind the challenge upper. I have been back in DC for work a lot lately so I have been slow but we have made significant progress.

Instead of just painting the new Challenge upper and seat cover to match the red bike... I just decided to paint the entire bike. I think that the results are going to look very nice. I am using a clear called soft touch. Its actually the same paint they use on a lot of cell phones. It has a rubber feeling to it. Very very durable and will keep me stuck to the bike due to that rubber feeling. Not cheap... $150 for a tiny quart of it. I think it will be worth it.

My friend that is doing the paint is working on it today and is supposed to send me some pictures. I will post them up as soon as I get them!

Stay tuned.

Have you got a rough photoshop pic of the design you are going to use on the bike?

I am still waiting on the bracket to mount the projector. Once I have that I can bolt on the challenge upper with the new headlight and its good to go!

looks good, you need a pic in the sun so we can see it.
