Almost done with it, well I'm never almost done with my car actually, but with this small part I'm almost complete.

Any idea what i'm talking about? lol
lol I didn't, she did :)

thats why she is the graphic designer and I am the guy who does all the electrical/engine work.

uhm honestly she used some wierd hobby paint that is water based, you can clean it up with lysol, she painted it, then VERY carfefully cleaned it all around where she didn't want to paint, then we clear coat so it doesn't smudge...

any questions, ask and I'll try to help.

i want to know exactly what paint she used and where i can get those. i'm painting my automatic shift gate silver and trying to find the right paint for it.
paint is faskolor by parma international color Faspearl Silver #40050

if you want a brushed aluminum look, use a FOAM brush, if not then use an airbrush.

Clearcoat: Testers Dullcote #1260 Hobby/Model/Craft Laquer

hope that was quick enough
