Nice Job!

Looks like you took your time and ended up with a real sharp-looking finished item.

Now, of course, what's next?

I'm in awe, especially since I suck numero uno when it comes to applying paint. I only acheive that kind of sheen when I paint the inside of lexan. :D

Damn nice job!
Thats motivation I think I might need to give that a shot!
if you dont mind how much money? time? did you spend and what did you use to paint it?

I have the dull black that they come with. Do you know if rubbing compund would work by itself to resurect a shine?
one more time: Damn nice job?
