This. Made me laugh.

It was broken in last weekend. Plenty of fresh pinstripes in the 40 soft coats of primer.

It's Grigio Telesto code 0098. It's the same color as the primer by design. Even if a scratch is deep enough to get to the primer it will be hard to see since they are so close in color.

Ya, I want to. But I need to see how the finances are when the date gets closer. I really need to regear but I need a better front axle. But I still want to go.

It got a LOT of compliments. I love the color, it was exactly what I wanted.

Deuce and the CPR staff did an OUTSTANDING job on this. And, you might just see it in the Chelsea Parade this saturday.

Although, I've not washed it yet to see how scratched up it got.
