6 steps of painting fun.
1. prep prime Let Dry
2. 2 base's while still wet tacky
3. perl clear
4. brush grain while tacky
5. wet-sand airbrush grain accents
6. clear wet-sand
(Started with about 18hrs in the bezel)
I guess you could say it's more than 6. All I know is it's a real talent to pull it off. The bezel takes a skill of it's own, but the paint is what made it work. I would have to charge $1200 too make another, just to cover the time.
