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

The photo really washes out the color, the color is DEAD on aluminum

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.

paint is faskolor by parma international color Faspearl Silver #40050
www.parmapse.com

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
