The Fat Chick's New Black Dress
It had been a while since I spent any money on the Fat Chick, so I decided to make it up to her with a sexy new black dress.

This is what she looked like 2 weeks ago, pretty average for a Wee.


And here she is showing off her sexy new black dress:






I'll get some better pics this weekend, when I'm out and about.

Now that you mention it, I can totally see it. Was not the intent though.

Did you paint your wind screen black? That seems like it might affect visibility?!

I like the flat black, but don't get colored over windscreen. It's something you might want to tuck behind and look through when the weather gets to be a bit too much.

Right on!!! The A-Team vibe is why I like it!

I've already cut the windshield down a couple inches, so it sits way below my sight line. Even when I tuck down against the tank, I can easily see over the top.

Ehh, he's not the first person to criticize my choice of colors. The only person I'm interested in pleasing, is myself. For those that like it for those that dont

Did you use a chem resistant clear on the tank? If not, any gas that drips while filling up is going to ruin your nice paint job.

I didnt put any clear on. The only flat clear that I could find in a rattle can was the Krylon flat, but it is not as flat as their Ultra Flat Black that I used.

Went to the gas station to fill up this morning. I was very careful not to splash any fuel, but sure enough, one small drop splashed out and landed on the tank. Now I've got a small blemish right next to the fuel cap.

I'm thinking about putting a red vinyl stripe down the middle of the tank. That will protect the paint and match the red highlights.
