    My friend Jason (a member here) got a crazy RC car this week and he had me try to create a DROID themed paint job. It came out ok, learned a valuable lesson about allowing paint to dry completely before applying a second coat. He still has to hit it with a couple coats of clear to make it shine but for a first attempt I was pretty happy with it.

    On this one I had to paint it from the outside because it already had a design with stickers and had been ridden pretty hard so it was chipped up and cracked a bit so you can see some flaws., the stickers didnt take paint very well. On the next one ill be able to paint it from the inside and it will look waaaaaaaaaaaay better.

    Are you located anywhere near Minnesota?

    I ask because I like it but don't have the talent to do something like this myself and would love to have a canopy for my r/c helicopter painted like this.

    I am doing an FSU/DROID car for my friend next. Let me get a little more practice and then Im going to try to start doing them for people. I dont want to disappoint anyone if they don't come out as well as they hoped because just materials on these things come to $40-50.

    They are pretty light so shipping shouldnt be a big deal.

    Shoot me a p/m when you're ready. I'll mail you a canopy for it so all you'll have to worry about is painting it and sending it back to me.
