Jaxson's Christmas 2015 Present

This past Christmas I wanted to get my nephew something special.  I wanted something cool...something that I would like.

So I bought this..

1222151657

This is the Step 2 Motorcycle.

I looked at it...and it made me think of a Ducati.

and I have a friend that does AWESOME VINYL...both commercial and vehicle and promotional etc.  Please check out StickyIcons.com

So I decided I can modify this...and make it custom....

I thought OK...what can I do?  With the help of my friend and Google...I needed to do some painting.

Picked up some Black Gloss Plastic Spray Paint.

Now..to put it together...it started to come out really good. The black alone was such a drastic difference.

I also picked up a pack of reflectors...

So using the Ducati font...I had "Jaxson" made...and I had "888evo" made.  Of course there is no such thing as an 888...but the 8s are good luck..so that is what I did!

and the best part...the TAIL SECTION!  OMG..this made the whole bike come together...

man...it is far from perfect...lots of things I could of done cleaner.  But overall...it came out OK.  For a 1.5 year old it is AWESOME.  I mean he cannot even enjoy it yet.  It is still too big for him!
