6. Once the front half of the Brute was painted, the crew from DC Customs started working on the back half of the frame. Several hours were spent hand-sanding each and every metal part from the middle of the frame back. This painstaking effort removed all of the light surface rust, years of road grime, and other slight imperfections.After the half-day sanding session, we pushed Teal back into the paint booth so that Dustin could paint the frame semigloss black. As you can see, the results looked awesome.
