The Painted Droplet

Today the Droplet returned from the spray shop in all its glory.
The colour flip paint goes between purple and green, with a few other colours depending on the light.

The reflective quality of the paint has astounded me... it is a million times better than I had ever imagined.

The final sanding

The finishing kit.

The piece has been primed and sanded, then primed and sanded... then primed and sanded again. I'm finally down to a 500 grit paper and the piece is smooth and ready for spraying.
To satisfy H&S the piece is being 'man tested'.
Can the piece can withstand the weight of a 12 stone man standing on its edge pulling from the top with out any movement?.... tick!!
