Latest update on the Bravado LE Team Scream jobbie... I've found a good match for the blue, but as yet haven't found a good dayglo yellow.

I must be a masochist as I've decided to individually mask each splatter bit to keep the right effect. It's taking a long time!

Have nearly don the seat tube section... which just leaves the down tube and both seat stays. See pics below -

The pictures do show up every little fault and I'll ensure I tidy these before applying paint...

It has also dawned that i will have to do the reciprocal when the yellow needs painting...

In other good news, thanks to a bumper order from rojo... the LTS will be up and running by Monday

:D :D :D

As ever any thoughts appreciated... particularly ones about my sanity :shock: :shock:

You are being very thorough. I think doing a rubbing and making a stencil would be easier or at least a good back up plan. Blue or yellow first then the other. This man agrees...

Stencil sounds an excellent idea - never thought of doing a rubbing...

Cheers!

Masking film would be much better to use than bits of tape - it is a soft re-positionable plastic film you cut it with a craft knife (or scalpel) if you trace what you have you should be able to cut (carefully) the yellow and blue stencils in one go.

You only need to cut through the plastic - if you don't cut the backing sheet the other decal will remain intact.
