    This is a used diff cover so yeah you will see a nick or 2, but that is beside the point. I think I captured the blue pearl and tiny flakes in this video.



    More stuff for Simon's female companion person

    This was good practice for me, it allowed me to shoot the pearl in 2 batches over 2 days with different weather conditions, and the match was great. Shackles yesterday--the cover and guage surround were done today.

    color shift

    This video adds the life to this color. I began indoors then walked it out to the sunlight. What appears to be dark gray has hidden treasures. (Don't judge a book by it's cover)

    Just went through this entire thread from start to finish. Read every post also (although I don't know all you guys, so some of it was a little hard to follow). In-freaking-credible! I had no idea you could do so much with powdercoat. I have always wanted to get into this, but I doubt I have the patience for what you can do.:notworthy:notworthy
    Can't wait to see more!!!

    I appreciate the comments. Thanks for looking thru the thread!

    I haven't sprayed a thing, nor turned on my oven for over 8 days now. This is not a "professional" operation, rather a hobby for me which has spread very well by word of mouth. I am as busy as I want to , or, can be actually. As any hobby it is still " in the red" , however i have not one regret. This has been the most rewarding experience I have had. At a point in your life you find it isn't about money, it is about what you do, and how you feel about it. Sure money is nice, however it interferes with the creative genius within all of us.;)

    Thanks for the support!

    :)

    So True!

    Everytime I get a notification/email there has been an update to this thread I feel like a kid in a candy store. Then when I find out its an update without pics I feel like that kid in the same store but they are all out of candy! Seriously, as stated before, I could look at Jon's work all day.
