    it was a strangely enjoyable experience ....
    and the linseed look isn't for me.

    it'll be okay i guess this is part of the joy of DIY

    I'm confused. Maybe we are not talking about the same 2K paint. Mine went on from a single can with just some light dusting coats (especially on the decals) and then heavier coats until the can went dry. Easy Peasy

    That's pretty cool! And it looks like a rocket ship! I can picture it with the side covers polished... Do it! :rock:
