    Hi guys, just wanted to say I'm slowing it down. I'm putting this out there because I have a few guys out there that have said they want some paint work someday. Well, someday is here. And quite possibly after this winter, I may not even take in any side work. As you know, I'm back with BDM and production is steadily increasing. And it's easier to make my extra money with them, rather than juggling a bunch of side projects.
    So if you've been waiting, you better get in line before the train leaves the station!

    I like the sound of steady. I hope they'll let you loose on some of the project because I'll miss seeing that stuff. I'll forever be the lucky girl that was able to have my favorite artist paint my bike. Miss you, Buddy!

    Well, I'm not going anywhere. I' just not going to be doing as much side work as I used to. And definitely not the lame, boring stuff...that the guy has to have it done yesterday...for the bottom dollar...or screw me over and stick me with their return shipping...
    See what I mean?
    However, sometimes I get approached with a job that is different and fun. Something that I could really stretch my legs on...those are the jobs I want to do.

    I was one of them. I'll own up to it. Finances just got a little tighter on me once I got back from the reunion trip. Was't able to come up with the dough. Still have the horrible chip on the tank and no way of getting fixed in the near future. Thank you Ed. Sorry I couldn't make it work out in time.

    In the meantime you could get something really close at an automotive store with touch up paint to cover the white spot, it would be less noticeable. You could also put a decal of something over it for the time being.

    Ed, every now and then could you show us what you've painted? If BDM allows it? We all love your work and truly enjoy drooling over it :)
