Don't knock the Blue/Yellow color scheme. It has worked wonders for our Chargers;D

Failure #3 & #4

Gahhhh, more problems. If you can see, I'm getting tiny bubbles. Why? I dunno. I don't know if it's bad paint or if it's too humid out? I let it dry for a bit to see if the bubbles went away or smoothed out or what. Nada.

The second thing is the color is just horrible... again. I know I was thinking a Metal Flake Root Beer because I've seen it and it looks awesome. But just brown is bad. And notice the fine texture in the paint. That shouldn't happen either. This should be glassy smooth. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr >:( I need to either wait for less humidity or paint in a more controlled atmosphere like the basement.



So, despite my other project of the two tone going well. I'm just going to pick a single color and go with that. This is just frustrating realizing my idea's as I go along. I need to plan better. Anyway, I got the base fixed. it needed a touchup. The microphone stand had stripped threads. I fixed that. But still, someone took pliers to it and fugly up'd the stem. I need to find a metal filler and fix that.

Wouldn't YouTube have some hands on video tutorials you could check out that could probably fix some of the issues you are running into?

I'm not sure about youtube. Google search for these kinds of paints have been pretty good. Found several forums that get into this stuff pretty nicely. And my co-worker here is into restoring auto's, so he has insight to paints, primers, metals, etc.

I think I'll wait for the humidity to drop. Also, i'm going to try lacquer again.

Dude, I know this is a frustrating project for you, but there's no need to turn to the bottle.  ;D

That took about a second for it to sink in... then I did a spittake. Funny chit.
