    I went to the sign and graphics shop here and went over the CD-R I made for him with the Rollfast and Schwinn graphics details.

    He said I did an excellent job putting it together and with everything I provided him and the talk we had then he would be able to do the entire project for around $40! He showed me the materials he had thought of using to produce what he thought I needed and it was a really helpful experience. He has a long history as a sign builder and I also asked him about his work on several occasions before deciding to approach him with the job. The pictures and sample he has displays go all the way back to his training and final exam project (full commercial business logo graphics on a small car) and some actual signs in the shop and several of them are area businesses so I knew the signs well.

    I have already thanked Cory Easom for the additional work on AHemp's original files and will send another heartfelt thanks to my fellow member very shortly. This is going to be very, very nice when it's finished!

    I also want to say my birthday has been pretty okay today and the BF email beat everybody else!

    Something may show up later but no drama right now from me...I was working on very large speaker cabinets and tying up my July budget so I'm gonna sleep now.

    If I seem a bit slow lately, it's been my birthday and I've been arranging my budget and wrapping up bills for the month to get some non-bike stuff. It's been worth it though...take a look.

    I thought I'd have a painted bike by now.

    It's over there, saw it today...

    NOT THE LEAST STARTED.

    If he wants money or something he should speak so I could at least budget it.

    No it's not going to disappear, it just hasn't been touched.

    I HAVE DECALS ORDERED AND DESIGNED FOR $40...

    Who else can paint the bike around the Treasure Valley then? I've had a lot to do to make a house pass a HUD inspection and it's also clear a board under the tub/shower is going to fail soon and inspection is the 9th.

    I just have to budget it.

    I have no clue why nothing's doing and I don't want you to feel disappointed and that's kinda annoying.

    A lot of wasted time so now none is being squandered...I've got everything but the original paint back and I'm working to get that. There will be finished fenders at the least by Monday! None of the fenders I brought him were actually bad...Germaine will have some soon also. 1/4 of all the fenders are primered on top and the bottoms of Tempest's may need touchup but they will be ready Saturday. Watch me.

    I'm about to paint the rear fender it's base color. I just realized the guy still has my tank and I'm trying to get the spraypaint and supplies back so I don't have to spent $20+ I don't really have on Pontiac light blue, white and such on top of maybe 1 more can of primer. My camera battery has two more hours to charge so more pix can wait til morning.

    Happy Independence Day!

    Got the paint and working on the tank and chain guard's return. I have most of Tempest involved in some aspect of painting. I am going to wait til tomorrow to work on it better with time and more stuff.

    Happy Independence Day, which I'm having except when the bottle rocket landed next to me in front of the house while spraypainting.

    East Hill, I hope you are having fun on the Islands and they shoot them off over a volcano or something...that would look cool!

    I know it's sloppy but this is a work deciding how it's done in some cases and I'll clean it up good when I go to mask and take the chain and crank apart. Yet to come is Pontiac Blue and striping diagonally across the bars and bottom tube.

    Refresher: Hey. come to think of it, I'M BACKWARDS on the front fender!

    More spraypaint and 600 grit sanding paper, masking tape (I asked for and got some green tape that is supposed to be better and it was on sale). More pictures later.

    Most of the bike is locked in the shed for a couple more days. I have to finish cleaning and setting up to pass a housing inspection and also finish 2 pairs of speakers by the 9th.

    I took the frame to my LBS to get the crank. chain and steerage sepaated so I could do better at it and the owner's assistant asked me why I didn't ask him to paint it. He's quoted a reasonable price I suppose and I could figure out payments for About $100 but I hope he can use what's there and salvage it. I spent about $100 of what I have and it has problem spots but the colors are perfect to me. I sent him the mockup and some other pics (the original grey bike and the trim added). We'll see.

    Germaine, meanwhile, has worn the race(s) and I was told it will hold out for a while. After 13 years I should hope so. I have a lot to catch up.

    I talked about my experiences with spray cans and could he try to clean up my drips and use what I had to clean it up and finish. He said if I could provide the paints he would do that for free. So a lot of my work will still be there and I can still pay my other bills and finish what I need to.

    I won't wait for months either.

    Hard to believe the bike is finally starting to pull together.

    I'm holding my breath for you, hoping that everything keeps moving forward. I know you've been waiting for this for a looooooonnng time.

    It's my fault, I fear. Still, I guess I have two bikes where I would've had none to ride at all and I've had a lot of time to be creative and get other things together.

    Thunderstorm weather but it's WELCOME...10F drop in temps will help a lot.

    Tempest is still at the LBS shop owners brother's place...he also works there. He said he had the fenders stripped down---LOTS OF BONDO and would try to get the colors matched up as close as he could but I shouldn't have used engine paint...

    Meanwhile all is quiet, it's the beginning of a new month and I have been concentrating on paying the bills and getting the supplies to finish the stereo I am trading for his work (now that we've established I was half right on technique and all wrong on paint type--oh well)...I get a turntable gone in the process and I already have SEVEN anyhow...

    Hang in there and stash a picnic on your bike...it ought to be a decent weekend. Don't forget the insect protection and ENJOY.
