    Finished my A pillar gauges.

    Finally finished my A pillar gauge holder. But if im brutally honest its nowhere near as good as i'd like, mainly because i got sick and tired of sanding the fecker lol. Now its sprayed satin black it doesn't look too bad but close up you can see the small defects, but thankfully nobody will be close to it due to me being the driver ha ha. Anyway here's some pics....







    Once the paint has dryed properly it'll be getting chucked in the car, only have one working gauge at the moment but shouldn't be too long until i've saved enough for the additional one.

    Looks good mate, the paint will be dry in less than an hour but id let it harden over night if i was you. All that work, you wouldn't want it scratching or anything whilst fitting it.

    If you painted them this morning mate they should be fine to fit by tonight, although with winter coming the nights are dark early

    Its the worst bit, painting something and your desperate to see what it looks like in or on a car, and you have to wait for it to harden, whilst the temptation is there to fit it with soft paint. Gone wrong so many times with me before in the past because im an impatient b*stard haha.
