Wilco, tell me more please!

(excuse me for seeming to have lost my marbles here, Wildmountain should know what I mean :icon_wink:)

Nice job on those pedals, what did you do on the paint for those last two? Is it metallic?

I posted these on the dutch forum as well, indeed.
Those last two were done with regular spray paints for cars. Only thing I did was, after painting it red or blue, slightly spray them with just a touch of silver metallic. Just enough to get some glitter on them.

Wilco.

Put on those sunglasses!   :icon_mrgreen:   Actually it isn't glittery...  that is just the flash reflecting off the metallic bits in the paint.

I use Adobe Illustrator for the graphics. I print it as 1 decal sized the same as the entire face of the enclosure, print on clear laser decal stock from Small Bear, soak off and apply, let dry for 24 hours, clear with lacquer, and voila!

theundeadelvis (tude?), are you drilling before or after you put the decal on?

bellyfop, I drill before I put the decals on on. The best thing about the Super Lacquer I use is that its melts the decals a bit. Not enough to damage the look but enough to eat it away where there are holes drilled and it softens the edges so you don't notice its a decal.

P.s. I don't know what the (tude?) means?

I'm about a week away from trying this method, so thanks.  Are you using Plasti-Kote Clear Super Lacquer?
