Default My New "Antique" Schwinn Corvette

Well almost done with my 6th or possibly 7th build. I hadn't even thought about building a new bike yet I was in Kmart on accident looking for something Walmart didn't have and there she was - A Schwinn Wayfarer on sale for $149.00. I wanted black because I like to match the tank color and black is black. So I get home and hate the factory decals and decide to sand prime the frame ( which sorta defeated buying a black bike ) shoot the ebony black and 6 coats of clear then make up some decals on my plotter and lay them on the chainguard and tank then 6 coats of clear over them. Just finished the test drive and drove over to my friends house and his neighbor walks over and asked where I got the antique schwinn ..... big smile. Thanks to all of those on the forum that answered questions - I haven't asked any but this has been a valuable resource for ideas and troubleshooting.
