Same, the way they’ve been distressed won me over.WOW!!! I love the kill stipes! Didn't think I would. But I do!
I'm on my 3rd helmet now so I'm definitely becoming more comfortable with the process. I still get giddy each time I apply the first coat because it's unbelievable on how shiny and realistic this finish really is. I have been researching real metal look ever since I bought my Styrene R2 dome to go with my Styrene R2 ( almost 10 years ago). I was and still am a member at Astromech.com and every builder using styrene has tried almost everything from rub n buff to Spaz-tix chrome. I got a tip from a train guy that said use yellow under aluminum for the real metal look as well--not too bad but nothing like this powder. This is a must try for anyone still on the fence. It's so inexpensive and ships really fast. I bet you can even use a Brillo pad to get the swirls if you so choose to.Thanks guys! It was definitely a case of trusting the process.
