    Phase III:

    Silver undercoat being painted. Still needs another couple coats.



    Seeing what it would roughly look like if left all silver, I can safely say it definetly needs some contrast. Where to make it black? As far as a little design goes, I'm having trouble picking something that would be classy, subtle and not a total nightmare to actually do... There are tons of funny things I could put on there, but not really stuff that I would want on there as part of the car everyday...

    I can forgive many things. But poor composition is not one of them.

    I don't know why...but this picture reminds of the movie Clockwork Orange...so maybe you should paint the stick shift knob VESUVIUS ORANGE!!!

    Seriously Miami, you painted that in the bathroom?

    I guess its better than the dining room table, but I hope you had the exhaust vent on and a window open, 'cause that stuff will make you higher than a Georgia pine.

    Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

    Once you mentioned Clockwork Orange I totally see why - but just to confirm... you refer to the walking stick knob and not to the following...

    You guys think I would be painting in my dining room table and bathroom. Lol come on fellas. I paint outside. And the box is to keep the knob upright.

    Clearcoat going on.

    First clearcoat is pretty dry...I like the glazed look. Will need another coat tomorrow to even it all out. Definetly looking like its gonna end up a winner.

    Good to hear. I guess I was just assuming you didn't move it once you painted it, but I see you're just moving it to the bathroom to take the pictures. I guess the lighting is more optimal there.

    Its lookin' good so far.

    Btw, I guess it should be noted that people undertaking this mod should expect to have their RRS out of commission for a couple of days (unless you have some temporary way to shift the car). On the positive side you won't have to worry about somone stealing it while you're doing this mod.
