Plodding Along

What with near to and 40+ degrees it’s been way too hot to spend time in the shed, but I’ve caught up a bit now it’s cooled down. The V-Star Embossed is ready for final assembly, the neck is black with a transparent black fretboard and ebony fret markers, you can see the internal pup assembly in the photo. This’ll be the first and last tin I use unless I can find a thicker one as this one was just that tad too thin.

Playing silly buggers again

Seeing as boredom is setting in, I decided to sod about with Poser and came up with this image. It’s pretty basic but makes a good wallpaper πŸ˜›

As You Can See

I’ve changed the theme AGAIN πŸ™‚ one day I’ll leave it alone but I doubt that’ll be any time soon jejeje


New Paint

Or part thereof πŸ˜‰

Just started respraying the bike, it’s now a deep blue metallic with the beginnings of a Gitana/Flamenco dancer on the tank, with the Cross of Asturias (Cruz de la Victoria) on the rear guard. I knew it wouldn’t take long before I decided to change the old paint job πŸ˜›

Didn’t like it – starting again 2-1-11

Just gotta add the faces and a few tiny touchups and this is done.

In Case You Haven’t Noticed!

Been mucking about with the appearance of the site, no doubt it’ll probably change “again” – who knows. Right now I’m off to sort out the workshop so I can actually find stuff I need. Actually sort out is wrong – more like clean the bloody tip up πŸ™‚

Seeing as I don’t stick me ‘ead in ‘ere as often as I should, I’ve scrapped the guestbook and replaced it with a contact form – at least I’ll see who’s trying to contact me straight off. So if you’ve sent me a message on the guestbook, feel free to drop me a note.

Also added a few more sarcy pics to the gallery, just can’t help meself πŸ™‚
