Sandblasted and primed it in me back yard. Paint stripper is not fun by the way, makes your mouth go numb if you inhale... not that I was trying to mind you.

Re: SwingerProject

Im not to sure if I want to keep the long seat in there, It's not really stable yet and I need to find a good way to support it.

Re: SwingerProject

Looks good man. I want to see some close up shots of those rims, they look pretty win.

Re: SwingerProject

Sweet! I love my Swinger 2 to death...

How many coats of paint and of clear? What's the finish of the grey.. mat, semi gloss?

Tuck your HTC under the tank!


Re: SwingerProject

Looks sweet ass. I kinda dig the long seat. I was thinking about weather or not i should use that seat on my pinto.

Still rollin stock?... Not even a boss?

Re: SwingerProject

Nice Ride!

Re: SwingerProject

The grey is just an epoxy primer, The white is 2 coats of flat white primer, and then two coats of clear. Sadly I didnt take enough time to sand it super nice so there is a little bit of orange-peel texture in some spots but its really not noticeable.

Still rolln stock right now, trying to get it to run for longer then a minute, need to start adjusting and fine tuning everything >.<
