    Gideon has decals!


    Isn't he so handsome?


    I love how clean the decals are. I wish there were some way to get them on the bed flat, so that there wasn't that little bit of a rise up from the bed of the machine, but it's really not noticeable at all.

    Unfortunately, pollen or something buggered up the clear coat, so I had to sand that down. Going to try and get another clear coat on, I'm just praying I haven't completely buggered things up forever.

    You wanted to clear coat over the decals anyhow, so it's all good. Your machine looks great!

    Thank you! I got the decals from Keeler Sales on eBay; great seller, and the decals were very easy to put on with clear instructions.

    Thanks! Unfortunately those pictures are from before the clear coat; right now he looks pretty pitiful with his sanded bits. I'm just crossing my fingers that it all evens out once I put another clear coat on, other wise I'm in big trouble.

    Awesome work Brynn. What time of the day did you spray on the clear coat? Perhaps spraying the next clear coat early in the morning before the pollen starts flying will give better results.

    Thanks for the tip! Yeah, I never think about pollen because I'm not allergic, but my boyfriend is. I should have known better when he was sniffling and sneezing all weekend. I was painting in the late afternoon, so I think what I'll do is try to paint him early Wednesday morning before I go to work; the rain will have washed all the pollen away, and it'll be too early for it to get going again. But I'm sure it's for the best; I really wanted to make sure he got multiple coats of everything so that he really shone.

    Handsome machine and you are doing a great job. Anyway to move it inside to dry, that would keep lots of things off of it.
