Got it painted and cleared.
Had a bit of an issue with the gun I was using, or more accurately my style of holding the gun. I kept bumping the air control knob and it caused some runs in the base coat.

And it wasn't quite warm enough in the garage I was using so the clear kinda, slid down I guess? as it cured leaving some pretty ugly rungs as well.

And I managed to lay a fair bit of orange peel in the clear as well. So in short I have some sanding and buffing to do in the future I guess.
For now I'm happy with my first attempt at painting. I think it'll look even better covered in mud

Still some parts left to put on but it is starting to look pretty wicked

Id really like for it to get sunny out so I can get the whole affect of the pearl in a pic. But it is Nov in WI so I might be waiting a while yet....
