on one hand I think it too plain, on the other it is unmistakeably a "speaker" So I'm kinda torn

Working on it.   Not happy with some uneven body work.   Still touching up here and there.   All of that red needs to be sanded down and I'll see how it looks.  Paint this weekend I expect

Going to run to run around today and look for a last little something to add some texture to the top flat bit.  I'm thinking some tile trim left over from my bathroom reno if I can't find anything else.  Cut off the prtetty part and have a flat strip of the base part that has the cutouts.    Or maybe an old door strike plate like this one.

Other than that, I have one last piece of the puzzle to sort out which I am finishing now, and a door chain to rig up an Ohld Vart holster rig and I'm calling this primary blaster finished.

For paint, I'm thinking mostly flat black with a silver drybrush for wear.  I'm thinking all black will be too boring, so I may add some matte olive in the tradition of the Glocks [yes, I know that is a 1911 in the picture but you get the idea]

Back in Black



Very hard to photograph wet matte black paint on an overcast day but this is a decent shot.  When it is dry I'll clearcoat it and let that cure till tomorrow, then mask it off and do the OD portions.  The a wash on the OD just like the plates and silver drybrush the black and I'll call it done.
