Sand and prime, sand and prime, sand and prime, sand and prime....well, you get the picture.
After a day's worth of that, I figured I'd had about as much fun as I could stand. Here's where I stopped, and here's where I start painting.

I still haven't decided on all the colors yet. BTW, there is actually more of a flair than is evident in the pics. I may just cast the ear pieces from aluminum if I feel that cutting them out will be too complicated. The keyhole thingy is still left to do as well.
