    My son Matt had a foot amputated due to a bad accident 2 years ago. Good news is he is doing great and will be getting his prosthetic in a couple of weeks.....ya
    Anyways...He has an e-bike that is his main means of transportation and will be able to ride it soon...ya again...
    Here is the original bike, orange and black ....

    I have been working on painting it for him for the last 5 months. This is how I got it...lots of plastic covers...

    Everything was done using Createx products. AutoAir, Wicked and Candy2o Caribe blue...everything being sealed with 6002 sealer black after scuffing. A lot of prep work .
    I have hundreds of wip pics, but I will post those if anyone has some questions on how I did something....

    Delivery of the parts for assembly. And the stripped down bike

    Finished
    IMG_1879 - Copy.JPG IMG_1880.JPG IMG_1881.JPG IMG_1882.JPG IMG_1884.JPG IMG_1901.JPG

    I am stoked how this turned out. I was worried that things would not flow due to the fact that I did each piece by it self without being able to lay out the design while together.....
    And.....He loves it and can't wait to get his leg and ride this.....
    Thanx for looking....

    Yeah! bet he can't wait to take it out!!!! My friend had his foot amputated just over a year ago, after a bike accident, luckily he got his prosthetic within about 6 weeks and was up and about and riding his bike again with a small adaption. He couldn't smile wide enough. Your son will be grinning from ear, and lapping up the paint job envy.
