Sleeping beauty's clothes are out in public

Finished up the rest of her clothes. I say finished up but she will still need some gold and then clear coat.
Little bit of a redneck setup, but hey, she doesn't care.
Will finish up tomorrow, then time to dress her. The wedding is just around the corner :P

Thank you. Man, I forgot how much work it was to paint. Sand, then fill holes or scratches, sand again, then wipe down, then prime, sand again, wipe down again, color coat, let dry, more color coats, let dry, final coat, let dry, then clear coat, by this time you are ready for a vacation, and thats just a few pieces of her clothing , whew :cry:

yeah, its hard work. I used to work in an auto body shop so I know what its about, but look at it this way, its the end results that justify the means right?

I think she will steal the show when you put her on the red carpet to show her off. She should sparkle and glow. An excellent job.

wow, that looks REALLY nice. love the way the black seat and backrest pad and gold sets the color combination off. are you leaving the side covers one solid color or are you gonna do the gold centers on them as well.

I will just place the emblems on the sidecovers. I think that too much gold would make her look too busy. The Goldwing insignia and emblems will be in gold. I don't care for the bare look of the side covers as it sits so, I'm thinking the emblems should offset that just enough.
