Well for all those that have seen it or not here are some of the faces
in the paint

As many people have found out it is very hard to get the faces out
with a camera.

Ive never really pushed to get it in scootering even though we have attempted to organise.
But in the end I felt it would spoil the expression on peoples face if they new what to look for, and it has been brilliant watching peoples faces
when they catch the light right and a face pops out.

Also if people see the scoot and have a video camera try videoing
the scoot moving across the panels it is fully amazing

well here are pics

Cheers m8

Yep took a bit of time to get the images to disappear fully and not leave like a negative image in paintwork. :?
To do a panel from scratch took 11 processes, also you try painting something yu cant see :shock:

On the night we sussed it , by F'ck did we jump about like little twats in the workshop. :lol:

Still its in its 5 season now, and gets riden come rain or shine ,Paintwork stil in great cndition and chrome /gold etc.

So got to pay tribute to the quality of workmanship
Paintwerx's and Quality chrome
