      I think it looks awesome. Some great wheels would really set it off.

      Wow, nicely done.

      I am very curious if you have any pictures of the design/prototyping process that were drawn out. I enjoy seeing the changes on the buildup to the final product.

      R32 owners shouldn't do this.

      Looks good to me...and it's a cosmetic mod that doesn't hurt the performance/handling of the car. I wouldn't do it myself but on the job.
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      Small animal? I hit the car with cows every week. That's why it needed repaint.

      I don't know if anyone noticed but it says Bastique Art Car #02 in the video title and today I want to show you #01.

      So Art Car #01 is my brother's own VW Fox, it's his daily work ride, transporting paint, ladders and stuff. When Germany was hit by a Tornado in early 2010 it got damaged quite bad to a total loss, so he decided to take the money, get the worst dents fixed and repaint it himself with cans, that's how the whole thing started. The characters shown are like his brand marks and in contrary to my R he also used lacquer sticks. Unfortunately there is no video of that one, but some pictures:

      Hello guys. At this moment I have the chance to get my car on the AMI (Auto Motor International) in Leipzig, a big cars convention and you can help me get there. If anyone's on facebook, you could really do me a favor by just opening this picture and liking it, that's it, you do not need to subscribe to any page or something. Thanks!

      I liked it; but you should have used one of the front end shots that showed a little more blue, they look even better

      Hello folks,

      my brother sprayed the next vehicle now. This time it's a bike! More exactly, a Honda Fireblade CBR1000RR SC57. Like his own VW Fox it's got his figures, the so-called "Minor Sufferings".

      Like the R32 before there is also a making of video of the Fireblade, which I want to show you today. Of course there are also a bunch of pics which are embedded afterwards.



      Let's see some overall views of the bike now...



      ...and some close ups to see what the paint quality is like.



      Feel free to tell me what you think.

      That really fits the bike well. I love the face made from the air intake.

      This is freaking awesome. Your brother should be proud of his work, cause it's amazing imo.

    27. 07-31-2012 12:38 PM #62
      Will forward that. Yeah the face combined with the intake - the "screamer" as we call him or them because they are on both sides - is a nice detail

      May have something like that bike done in the engine bay. It'll be easier than pulling the motor to color match to the outside body!
