Thanks John, I have a little bit of my Mothers Artistic abilities also in me. I'll do a little bragging here, back--let me say that again "back" when I was doing body work for Color Creations in Redondo Beach,CA at the age of 20 I did have two Harley frames, fenders, tanks that were molded and custom painted and both made the Bike Show at Pomona,CA. in 1971. That's my story and I am sticking to it LOL. Marvin

Re: Hello All

Couldn't find a rear bumper at a decent price so I bought a new one from Brothers, pretty good fitment also. Just like my pov hub caps it needed some distressing treatment too make it look more like its been there for 49 years. At this time I am not so happy with what turned out so far but I will keep on chipping away with the color tint it needs.
So far here is what it looks like. 1st pic is the front bumper that I want to match and all the rest of the pics are the back. Back not done yet :(

Re: Hello All

Over the weekend I taped off the letters on the tailgate (PITA) and painted them. Letting it dry for a while I then used Acetone to wipe off some of the paint to leave it the way you all see it, the way it is is OK for me. I do need to work on the bumpers "rust look" I did to it for a more realism.
