    Hey, I saw that gold/black Paint job and I'm flipping out. It's awesome! Mind if I "borrow" That paint layout for my bucket?

    I'd prefer if You didn't copy it exactly but I can't stop You.
    Glad You like it as much as I do though

    Not exactly... but the visor outline is what impressed me. I've been looking for cool ideas that spike my interest for awhile and that was one piece I would love to incorporate.

    Plus, exact copies are boring.

    that's fine Vod,
    just so long as i don't run into another black and gold bucket with the exact same paint scheme I'm happy.

    Don't worry haha. It's chrome silver with black and the only thing i really want that around the visor paint. It's pretty sweet.

    quick text update:
    the blue bucket is done for the time being.
    trimmed the dome supports out as they aren't needed anymore.
    added custom fitted foam inserts to the dome and rear arc.
    Visor is fully removable and held tight and secure with 12 neoprene washers on the T-post nuts.
    the finish has been weathered.

    only things left are to re-cut the keyholes (resin and paint ran in and dried) ,
    add some rub'n'buff to the larger areas of exposed "metal" and subsequent weathering, final black wash and mat clear coating.
    oh and i'm still looking for cheap fabric to cover the foam padding.

    the Black Bucket is in the same stage as the Blue with the sole exception of the Visor.
    The last T-post is giving me problems... too much tension on the visor keeps it popping off.

    next time I'll glue in the T-posts onto the bare cardboard then resin over them.

    pictures sometime beginning of next week.
