    Do a search for the square bird not a bike but there is a thread here that was informative if I remember right.

    getting the flake even takes a lot of:

    practice

    patience

    metaflake(don't be shy with this)

    clearcoat

    and wetsanding.

    Use super 77 spray glue to get the lace to stay put. and spray it quick.
