Base layer / Filler applied first layer of paint (Porsche metallic grey) Masking for the second and main color) Main paint applied (2K). Similar to the original but more like a blue tone After removing all the masking tape. Two tone paint done, ready for the custom made decals Detailed pics with decals applied and firsts layer of 2K clear coat.

I really like the metallic effect, The Santa Cruz logo changes from silver to dark grey depending on the Sunlight.... Decal design is not comparable to the original without being too fancy Top tube decal, I really like how the metallic effect pops out in the sunlight.

    Awesome build! Can I suggest a syncros mudguard? It’s super clean and fits fox forks perfectly! It’s made for fox 36’s

    Love it. The Nomad is not dead yet. I'll bet that Float X2 would make mine sing.
