Over a summer or two, matteo and I repaired an old lawnmower that we found on the side of the road. We decided to give it a sweet flame paint job. It was good practice for painting something bigger like a car, and also let us try out some airbrushing techniques. Before any of the painting could be done, we had to grind away much of the rust and old paint, which is not pictured here. We also had to rivet plates where the wheels attach, as the holes had become worn and broken where the wheels attach- probably why it was thrown out.
