It's called Rhino I have version 3 which has been great. I also have AutoCAD but I find it a dinosaur compared to Rhino for what I do.

I probably should upgrade to the new version but mine works well enough that I have never felt the need.

Found on ebay. Just bought 4 more today.
Found them. Nice size selection - and some in stainless, too - if you want to go crazy.

Yep. It had to be done. No one is going to call my brake an easter egg. Not even my wife.



1/8" fine line tape.



Automotive masking paper and a dark crayon.



Pounce wheel.



Poke holes in the pattern using a soft backing board. I use foam core board.



Flip the pattern over and gently open up the holes a bit with a scotch brite pad.



Shop rag. Construction chalk.



Rubber band.



Register the pattern. Pounce, pounce!



Faint chalk pattern. Blow off the excess.



Tape, tape!



New blade. Don't cut through the blue, jerky!



More tape, tape. Gettin' ready for some color...

I brush on some yellow One-Shot.



I mix up some orange to the consistency of milk. 15 psi. through my Iwata HP-C.



Easy does it. I'm just looking for some dimension. It's easy to do too much.



Dark magenta blended in.



Masking removed while wet to keep the paint from climbing onto the tape.

Once dry, out will come the pinstriping brushes.

The wet base locks in the fragile airbrushing and all will dry to a nice gloss with no clear. Wet-on-wet like a fresco.

Until next time...

Awesome. Want to do my bags like that? Jesse James isn't the only one who can do flames on his GS!
