Incredible job gameswat, there is something beautiful about that lightly hand polished faceplate, an ethereal quality that the final paint job cloaks. **xXx**

An excellent job and proof that patience and skill are essential to achieve a result like this. Things that very few of us have in abundance, unlike you.
The lengths you got to are astounding ….. :o

proof that patience
Funnily enough I don't think I have a lot of patience.....which is partly why I've learnt to restore as many things as possible myself because I hate waiting for others. I'm no team player that's for sure. I also use a lot processes that set and dry really quickly for the same reason!
