    Nov 25, 2008, 5:35 PM - Stormrider/FP3 esb rubber knee progress #1

    I got stormrider's/Fettpride's rubber knees last month but just had time to start on them.. Just wanted to post some of my progress pics. I primed and painted each with metallic spray and then put the masking fluid and a base coat of yellow seen here



    Let this dry a day and then I misted over with the pumpkin orange plus some grimey black. Once this was dried another day I removed the masking fluid and added some accent around the damaged areas..


    This is where I am at now, I just have to add some scratches and add in my dark side knee darts... let me know what you think so far...as for cracking, I noticed NONE so far.. I have bent them flat even. Used Krylon Fusion paints.

    Nice paint job. I like the black, gives it a more weathered touch.

    I just got some from Darkside..they look pretty nice.. just figuring out how I am going to anchor them in there..and I may need to dremel slightly.. i tried putting them in on the one and scrapped out the paint..still too tight to fit so I will dremel some out..just a hair.
