how much will that run me? i think i would need less than 6x24 to complete the job.
edit for updates:
task interior paint is completed.
that flat black didnt turn out so flat, its still has a glar when light shines on it. but i can live with that.
i missed a few spots where the tape was, so i just to a sharpie to it.
next up is the 2 x window jobs, first the side panel (tomorrow) and then the top panel "smoked" window (thanks aspire) when ever that comes in thru the mail. also awaiting the trim from mnpctech.com. that should get here early next week i suppose.
for the top panel project, i will need to remove the top panel. this should be failry easy, i just need to remember what size drill-bit i use so i can get that size screws to put the top panel back on when its finished. rather than using 2 sided tape, i think i am going to bolt this small window on, being its on the top of the case ....if i get lazy i dont want to set a drink up there and have it fall thru because the 2sided tape is giving out due to age (later down the road)
still could use some suggestions for side panel paintjob (custom design) if needed.
i could paint with arcylic paint and seal it with some thick polyurethane coats....or maybe just scrap the idea.
open up to all suggestions/ideas ( i still have about 2 weeks or so to get this done, so no rush on this project)
