Long time no chat. How's every little thing on your side of the pond? Oh man - I don't care what the purists say - that BMW (aside from being a brand I don't personally like) is pretty keen looking. I don't get the 'illegal' traffic on the thread though. I know it is illegal to tint your windows in such a way that the authorities can't see in and/or you can't safely see out - but - how can a paint scheme be illegal? As to actual coatings, it looks like about $1,500 - $2,000 for the paint kit to cover a SAAB. This isn't all that far out these days if you look at some of the more serious custom paint out there. Wish I could see the machine in the flesh - if my old BSA tank was anything to go by, you would seriously need to shade the machine in the sun because it would start collecting heat pretty fast. Not a huge problem where I live up here in Canada - in fact the surface would probably be a bonus come mid-January here. Thanks, as always, for the trick links brother. What I wouldn't give for the free time and extra cash to actually do this to my Aero. -- Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Mister Sammy Davis - Oo Shoo Be Doo Be http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/065.RAM all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in no sign up required - all the Time
