***Prototype Empire GT Shells***

While buying tools to paint my guitar hero controller i decides hell why not try it on some junk shells i've collected at our field. Heres my first "Empire GT Shell" it sucked because it's like 40 degrees outside and gets dark quick so i tried rushing a shell into one day starting around 1pm. I'll need to start making these 2-3 day projects for the winter time and at least now i know what parts need more covereage than others. Also im gonna start using an x-acto knife to change the shape of the Gt stripes. Anyways heres a first attempt. The photo's look orange due to the flash but it's really a candy apple red color. I'm gonna use a darker red next time for the actual GT shell for my karni.

top view (yes i know some paint leaked through i think the cold air outside didn't allow it to stick right.)

if you take your time and do it right painting just about anything usually turns out pretty well

yea it's actually a candy apple red just the flash screws it all up :S o well I need more of a brick red color to match my karni so again it's just a prototype so i can get the taping and painting down. I just needa get more shells i kinda like the whole "gt" theme.
