My customer wanted the hilt coated translucent blue, so I went with a candy blue auto paint, unfortunately the paint is very unforgiving so after the initial paint job almost a week ago I was forced to strip it and start over. This time I waited until good weather. The picture is garbage compared to how it looks in person. After 6 coats it will hang until Saturday then we'll slap in some guts.




I think my camera tried to color balance the blue, throws the whole photo off. In person it is a glossy sapphire blue and the black really pops. There is also some masking that won't come off until I'm sure the paint is good and ready.

Dry enough to carefully remove the masking for a sneak peak at the silver details

Good morning blue viper.

Edon, I know we didn't talk about it, but I took the liberty of spraying the blade plug and covertech to match.
