    yes, progress is good! i have worked some more on the keyslots and back bands some this weekend... been putting down the Lark Dark Grey (which in my opinion is way better than the reefer grey) with the chrome silver and got some more grey to put down behind the ear, can see some of the caboose showing thru, but pleased so far with my spacing on the damage...

    more progress pics! i have completed the keyslots, and the head band to behind the right ear...i am using the stencils from Dookie, sized at 82%, and a ruler to measure where the main damage areas are, to get the correct spacing...i am not actually transfering the images, found it easier for me this way...i do the silver first, then the SP Lark Dark grey, and go in and finish up with the maroon...i have begun the silver work on the left side of the band as well...

    Stop encouraging him....It slows him down thinking about the warm feelings he gets from us. Slam his work and he makes better progress. Watch this.

    YOU SUCK D!!! Pure feces!!! I wouldn't let my two year old wear it during a tornado drill let alone actually call it a fett lid!!!

    Watch and learn amigo, watch and learn...

    Well if that is the case what an utter piece of c**p you have going there!!! I would seriously consider starting over and let someone who knows what they are doing paint it. At least then it would turn out right.


    Just kidding bro keep up the good work

    ivan, ivan, ivan.... well, some more progress on the back bands...i have the whole right side done, and mostly the silver and dark grey done to the left side behind the left ear...still working on the maroon to the left... anyone else have a 5 year old that demands 24-7 attention...sheesh!! would have alot more done, but very busy being the end of school and all... progress will pick up...promise...

    now, is it just me, or do you have to put quite a bit of paint on for the maroon? seems like it isnt dark enough, so i have to go over it quite a bit to get it dark enough, and even then, i wonder if it is still not dark enough...i know that when i clean the brush out, it has some thinner still in it, and that may make it lighter, but still....any input?
