My Black Acorn Atom...

Postby Multiwizard » Sat May 06, 2017 6:34 pm

Hi,

I always liked the black Atom:

But they are not available, so I had to make one myself... 8)


Greetings, Wim... :-)

Ps. Roland €9.50 is way overpaid, the Action (Dutch shop) €1.99... :D

OK, but how did you proceed exactly ?
Spray, paint ?
Did you clean the case with a special product beforehand ?

Indeed with a spray can...

But before spraying it's very important to degrease the object firmly and well... :!:

And keep the spray can at a save distance of the object otherwise you get drippers soon... :!:
