Sadly I can't post pics of this cos my camera's gone up the spout (and I'm not so sure it'd show up on camera anyway).
I started by painting the shoulder bells ... they seemed the obvious place for me to start.
So I went to Halfords and picked up some car paints:
BMW Titan/Titanium Silver
Plastic (Yellow) Primer
Vauxhall Mustard Yellow
The primer and silver went on a dream, BUT (and I don't know if this affected the result or not) I forgot to wet&dry the silver before starting with the yellow primer.
Afterthe first coat I noticed that the primer dried in a crackled pattern over the silver. I wasn't too deterred because I thought it looked kinda cool.
So I painted another coat of primer, added some more masking liquid then started on the Mustard Yellow top coat.
The top coat filled in the cracks, leaving an aged leather look on the areas of my shoulder bells where I hadn't masked it.
It adds nicely to the aged look and doesn't show up unless you look closely.
Is this because I'm using car spray paints or because I forgot to wet&dry the silver?
