i doubt it will be holding a candle to yours.....but when i have fooked it up a few times, i will know more than i do now!! :shock:
want to try hlf, but the biggest problem i see is keeping the gun at a consistant angle to the tubes, to get the fade linear and straight.....it's an experience thing, and unless i give it a go, i'll have no more experience than i have now!
worst case scenario is paint it white and start again......i can do that!! :facepalm:

Whoops, thought I was on the MTBR VRC for a second with all these heated posts! :p


I would, however, find it pretty comical if the paint being melted off the 1martin frames above, were jrock's work.

Well if we're going down that route then I'll ask about Martins waiting list and customer service improvements ;-)
