    Your dead right about trying to take pics of metallics, I've yet to manage it and get really good results. I find a nice sunny day the best time.

    I done the white and silver thing on the inside of Bulldogs box, looks lovely in the some but totally wasted on the inside of a case.

    I have to keep you away from my cases, just in case you eagle eyes spot any thing...lol

    Thanks Joe, I was sort of going to do it like a tutorial but got carried away and just got stuck into it. Weather permitting tomorrow afternoon I want to try to get it 90% finished

    Had quite a good days spraying today, I've now got the chassis, side panels and front all sorted, just one side panel to go and then it goes back together and off to Tony.

    The paint dilemmas all sorted now and colour is pretty much down the middle of the previous 2...

    It might not look like there is to much flake in the pics but I can assure you that there is plenty, in fact any more and it will start to take over the green.

    I think there are 2 flakes too many. :D.

    Looks good, nice colour combos and the finish looks great, cant see any orangepeel or runs whatsoever.

    I demand a re-count. I've just been over the case 4 times and I'm only finding one extra, so you're going to have to show me where it is Mr eagle eyes..

    And just to redress the balance I counted the flakes on the chassis and found it to be one short, so if I remove the offending flake and place it in the chassis, in the correct position, the balance will once again be restored and harmony and the equilibrium of the universe will be as it was.

    Oh thanks for the comments by the way, when it's out in the sun the colour combo looks really good...(Nothing like blowing your own trumpet is there..lol).

    Absolutely love the gold flake. Looks phenomenal! Can't wait to see how this turns out. The green is a nice change from the standard colours people use and the gold works really well with it. The gold also seems to make the green pop!

    Ah feckin hell, now I'm going to have to spray the whole lot again to get the flake balance back in order:waah::waah::waah::waah:

    Edit: I'm going to fit a 2nd handle on the inside, then the balance will be restored.....Shiiiiit!!That was a close call. Stuff like this comes easy when your as smart as me....
