    Pugs extreme makeover

    I painted it with a can of paint. That is a Bontrager fork. Pics of frame soon. My boogers are blue.

    Hey!

    What's that wet fork doing in your mom's kitchen?

    stiffener

    Not only did I paint it, I inserted 1" rebar in the legs to make them more stiffer.

    More pug pics

    I might hand brush something on the downtube. Not sure what words would be worth the trouble. Rattle can paint is funny. It goes on really glossy in some areas and with a little stipple in others. The atomizer is inconsistant. Lungs are a little conjested from the fumes. Extracted another booger today that was the exact same color as the bike!

    Damn! I hate it when people copy me. My job cost me $8.59. How much for yours?

    Looks pretty good Leo.

    Beats the POS job I got at Precision Powdercoaters.


    Little surprised you opted to paint the fork, but whatever.

    You should go for matching rims as well!

    I amaze myself

    Hmm,what to paint on the downtube. It needs to be something profound but easy to grasp for the common man. Something that represents an all knowing and powerful presence. Words which signify the best humanity has to offer...
