    This is my buddies jet ski piece. I painted it Viper Black and my buddy did the airbrushing. Comments welcome. Keep in mind this is before cut and buff.

    thanks guys, im busting my ass to get my company started, and believe me i will never forget about the people that first came to me.

    Trav i can reuse the stencil as much as i please, but i wanted my friend to practice on it, then try it out on this, cause its not as simple as spray over the stencil there are low lights, high lights etc.

    To answer your question about the clear here is how it came to be

    Sanded Plastic with 180Gritt
    3 Coats of Primer
    Guide coat applied
    Blocked with 600Gritt
    2 coats viper black
    Blocked with 600gritt
    1 coat viper black
    2 coats of clear
    Sanded/scuffed up with 600gritt
    Air Brushed
    3 coats of clear.
