Jeez Bill, I thought your craftsmanship on the unpainted Canuck Grill was awesome, but the paint job puts the grill over the top!

Loving this project!

No doubt, the paint job is awesome, red's actually my favorite color and jokes aside, that shade of Red is my favorite..

I know everyone likes led fans, how about using some Red blade Yate Loons on those, the red and black combination should looks really nice. And you got cathode tubes, UV tubes, leds you could buy..

Incredible work! I'm curious how well the rotating grills function post-painting? Did you leave a small edge unpainted for smooth turning? Or are you opting for a bit of grease inside the grooves?

We only use Automotive grade paints. This finish is identical to what you would have your car painted. We always clearcoat our paint. The Obsidian feet were given fresh coat of paint as well.
