 19 July 2005: Pinstriped Type III, part 1
I was ment to be pinstriping on the hanz' car lastnight, but:
I pinstriped the front of the car with the first color (it's a 2 color design) and was halfway through the first color on the back when it started to rain!!
the front was just dry enough, but on the back we had to wipe half of it off again! next attempt on wednesday, but then at the guys workshop

 18 July 2005: Some more Hessisch-Oldendorf pics
Miles has just posted the pics he took on the trip to Hessisch-Oldendorf. better late then never. Actually it's kinda cool to get a fresh batch of pics a few weeks after the trip, it's brought it all back to me.

 15 July 2005: Tiki T-shifterclick to enlarge
Cut some fresh bamboo from the back garden to make into a T-piece to top off the tiki style shifter-rod-cover i'd made a few weeks ago. The thread is a piece of tube with on 1 end a flange with 4 spikes on. That wasn't solif enough, so i melted some lead and filled the inside of the bamboo with lead. There is about 200 grams of metal in there, that will give me some extra throw through the gears :-)

 12 July 2005: Wanted dodgy geezers
Have you seen any of these Geezers??

 06 July 2005: Pinstriped Vespaclick to enlarge
I'd already added some pinstriping to 2 bodywork panels of a friends Vesp scooter. But last night we finally got to meet up and he could fit them to his scooter. Once the panels were on, i decided it needed some more lines, so out came the brush & tins.

 03 July 2005: Tiki timeclick to enlarge
The interior of the pickup has gotten the tiki treatment with the adition of a lot of bamboo pieces. First up a set of bamboo jail-bars. A bamboo cover for the stick shifter and all the chrome trim on the doorpanels got covered over with bamboo as well.

I finally had some time to do some pinstriping again.
this time another big panel
