Here are a couple of pictures of my Tour Pak on my Electra Glide with a custom paint job of the Marine Corps "Eagle, Globe and Anchor" (Marine Corps EGA).

Thanks RJ! I am not sure if I have a real close up but let me look. If not I can take a close up tomorrow in the sunlight.

Got the new dog to the vet today and he has a good clean bill of health!

What does Bob think is wrong? Tell him to log onto the forum and we can help him get it going again.

I'll tell him.  He was going to try to make an appointment to get it in the shop, but not hopeful it would happen soon what with the holidays.  Plus money is tight, too (Christmas, etc).  But maybe it's something simple.  I'll rattle his chain.  He's a little slow on the keyboard  >:D  Would it be ok if he called you?

Thanks Bob!

We think he is either part Westie or Pit Bull Terrier and Poodle. He is another rescue. He's somewhere between 1 and 2 years old.  We got another rescue dog last year about this same time that is part Cairn Terrier and Poodle. We also have a 10 year old Pomeranian. 3 house dogs! Some folks might say we are crazy! 

Hey Larry!  Looks great!!!

Thanks Joe!

RJ,
Here are few close ups. Can you see the technique that the artist used in these shots?

Larry, now that's what I'm talkin about. If your gonna show off your art work. Do it like that! Looks dam good. One of the reasons I wanted to see better pictures. I wanted to see what the artist's techniques were for their lettering and the EGA. Lettering looked free handed with just an airbrush. Looked good too and they used a stencil when doing the EGA. Which is the way to do it. No over spray and a stencil or a straight edge will allow you a clean crisp line when and where needed.

RJ,
Thanks. I think the artist did a pretty good job. The paint hasn't held up in other areas but the graphic still looks as good to this day as it did on day one. This coming April 2015 I will have 7 years on that paint job and graphic.

The Tour Pak was first bought for my white 2005 Road King. When I purchased the Electra Glide in April of 2008 I had a local painter strip the factory white paint and match the Crimson Red Sunglow paint and do that graphic. 

The Tour Pak has held up well over the years. I had to replace the latches this past summer.
