  • Ok HERDSTERS opinion needed.

    Got a derby cover that came off an 08 96TC/6spd that I am going to stripe and contribute for the auction @ HERDSTOCK.

    I spent most of an hour using a 3M pad scuffing the #*&$ out of it. Cleaned it real good and put a healthy adhesive primer coat, followed by 4 coats of Textured Satin Black.

    Now I am trying to figure which way I want to go as far as stripes. I have it narrowed down to two options.

    1st option is an Old School white and red style simple stripes.

    2nd option is a Maltese Cross stripe pattern in white and red.

    So what do you recommend. I know I narrowed it down to certain bikes by painting it black. But I was really worried about the paint being on a chrome surface. Hopefully who ever gets this will mount it on a bike, and I wanted the paint to be somewhat durable.

                              Just to sweeten the pot..... I sent some stuff to Dixie already that I striped. I did another piece over the weekend that I'll bring along too. Since DDB is donating a hand painted derby cover for a 1999 or newer bike, I'll donate one for a 1998 and older, 3-hole primary. Old Skewl style. Purple and gray striping..

                                Damn Dave you be turning the heat up on me..... That looks real good. I really like those colors. The wife was trying talk me in to doing it in multiple shades of gray. Makes me think she was on the right track.
