The first step in starting a new paint job on a bike is sanding down what was there before. This is a very time consuming step, but very spiritual. Taking the factory paint job and starting the foundation for your new creation. This 3T Exploro I am painting is a commission and will be getting a custom design based on his kids favorite colors as well as some cool interpretation from me. My friend Kevin Cook of "Pilot Me Fishing" stopped by to capture the initial steps. Check out the photo gallery below. Very excited about the final product.
