Man this thing is dinged up... I prime it, sand 90% of the primer off, paint it and all the imperfections pop right out again...

I can’t believe how long I’ve let this sit around… it’s technically for Daughter #3, and she’s been bugging me to finish it for her. I figured out something to hold the body to paint it (we picked out some Purple Glitter Blast paint) so as soon as it’s not so windy, it’s gonna get some color on it.

Uh oh… now I really did it. I had some old “Glitter Blast” cans sitting around and my daughter has been bugging me to finish this. I forgot how crappy some of these cans can spray and these ones have been sitting for 5+ years… they were spitty and really hard to control despite me warming them up and shaking them for aaaaaaages.

Once it dries I’ll see if I can salvage this finish. I’d really hate to have to sand this thing for what feels like the 11th time…

The color rocks, @daan! I hope you’re able to salvage the paint job, especially since your daughter #3 has been so patiently waiting for it. 😁

I went to try and scrape the couple big runs in the paint on here. The paint was still kind of wet in it, so I put the body up in my dry workshop. I’ll get to it hopefully before the holidays….
