    New Paint for the BMW

    Okay, maybe it is my Anglo saxon heritage, Scotish, Irish and Welch, but I went for the emerald green, with multi stripe pinstriping. Sorry Fang, I didn't like the way the checker looked on the dark green. Here are the tins I just finished about an hour ago while watching Hallie Berry in Catwomen (some of the striping may be off for that reason, dam she looks good in leather)....but I digress.

    OK pete-

    is that flash burn (i'm hoping) or did you go with some sort of beemer iri-flective rattle spray? i dig the wanker stripe on the side covers, but you're tryin' too hard to anti-wank on all the others. then there's the crappy brown backgrounds...let's see 'em on the bike.

    oh, and orange peel wont impress anybody, but i'm with you and could care less....it's all in the journey. oh yeah, and '97 caddilac green is the way to go...i still have a quart.

    Yes, frame is black. Pics of it will be posted once I finish.

    TT, reflective tape striping is a most when painting a BMW. I had to force myself not to make it OSHA orange! But, good self control won out and I turned it Caddie Green.
