 17 October 2004: pinstripe work
did some more pinstripeing. pics taken with my cellphone, so the blue doesn't show up so clearly :-(

 10 October 2004: Pinstriped toolbox version 2
I decided to spray my toolbox black again, so i could try to pinstripe it a second time. With the help of some pencil guidlines i was able to get a much more symetrical result. The pencil i used is a ''Stablio All'', which works on most surfaces and it's not wax based so it won't react with the paint.

 09 October 2004: Ready for hibernation
Took friday off from work and cruised over to Hans' place. The man's got a hydrolic lift, so it's much easier to work on the chassis. Replaced the worn front shocks with some new white Kyb items. These new ones work both ways, much better not it's so low. We also upgraded the fusebox, a much needed upgrade as the 6V jalogene bulbs kept melting the stock fusebox. The chassis under the cab got a fresh coat of paint and we made a skidplate for the steeringbox. Based on an old brakeshoe from an oval, it bolted almost straight on, just bend a piece of steel and weld it on the back. The other side of the support bar is bolted onto one of the bolts that hold the steeringbox in place.

 03 October 2004: Pinstriped toolboxclick to enlarge
Got myself a propper pinstripe-brush via prosign and today i finally had some free time to try it. Boy does that make a difference! It's much easier to get thin lines. Simmetry is still al problem though, but then again it's all done freehand (still haven't found a pencil that works on slick black surfaces).

 01 October 2004: Moving servers, the site may be off-line for a while
This weekend i'll be moving my site to another server, so the site may be off-line for a short while. I'm hoping it won't take to long, but you never know.
