    If you plan on wetsandign that thing ever, you better put somecoats of paint on it. And if you ever plan to wax it so the paint doesn;t fade as it will very fast, you better plan on wetsnading it. Use lots of coats of clear since you are using spray bombs. If you wet sand and coat wet sand and coat yu can get a smooth flat surface you can wax and kep shiny for years to come.

    ... welcome to CK5, now let us inform you. That thing will likely be bashed off of a rock next week. Glossy paint isn't a large concern for most of us ;) Though people find it funny when I yell at them for scratching my Project S10.

    Branndon,

    i have a tool deal that you put on spray cans. Makes it much easier. You pull the trigger and bam it sprays no more blisters. Wanna use it?
