    My latest project Is my old faithful M18x R2. While I wait for it’s GTX 1070 upgrade, I’ve decided to freshen her up. I decided to go with Delft Blue which is the colour of my old car (Holden VU SS ute).
    I started on the LCD lid but the chassis isn’t far behind.

    Pics are; Before, Primed, First Coat, Clear Coated.
    It’s dark outside so couldn’t get a photo in the sun, for now

    Thanks man. I just bought an M15x off ebay today so I'm planning on doing the same paint job to that so I have a matching pair.

    Very nice!
    I may have been a bit of a petrol head back in my younger days but I got rid of the Ute and bought a family wagon. Granted it has a 6L V8 and 6 speed manual trans but it still carries the kids ;)
