Default was this lame or not?


I smoked one of them funny smokes one day. And I was looking at my bike. I wanted to get it done but I was broke. So I thought "Hey! Let's get creative..."

So I took my rear turn signals, and drew out a design.
Now there are 4 exposed sides on the lens. So I taped of the bottom, did a triangle design on the outer side, blacked out the top, and taped off an arrow on the main panel.

Tossed 3 HEAVY coats of primer, then another 5 light coats of flat black. (All spray bomb BTW)

Removed the tape, the paint is 1/16" thick. Lol.

As the one pic shows it has a cool effect, and I forgot to take a PIC of the rear panel lit up.

But I want to know...

Lame? Or badass?

Interesting and creative to say the least, my.02 is to try tinkering with fiber glass instead. Create a cover/cap out of fiberglass and cut whatever design you want in it. Place the turn signal inside and boom custom turn signal, you place ductape or tin foil over the lens and you'd have base to lay the glass on.. You could even cut the lens down if you want.
