I've been playing with guns all day...
Itty bitty cute ones, lol :)
They had to be cleaned up, ground smooth, washed & painted before they were ready to be a part of the NASCAR trophy....
But, they look so great now! I decided to go with black & olive drab green paint for contrast, & I'm glad I did; the gun details really pop against the polished aluminum.... Tomorrow, the plaque will be added: I got a preview: it has digital camouflage, the race logo, the NRA logo, & it looks sooooo perfect!
The finish line is in site; I can't wait to see it all come together :)
Love the way the brass & copper contrast with the aluminum & military colors : )
Tomorrow, the plaque will be bolted on, & just a few touch ups, & it's ready to be shipped to Atlanta.
-after I take some pics, of course ; )-
Check back for finished pics tomorrow...
Thanks so much to Blake Trailers & Fabrication for the help with cutting & welding aluminum, & special thanks to Ray at Rouge Design Syndicate for the work on the logos/plaque/etc. Also: a very special thanks to the community at 4-Chan for the recommendations & help with gun designs :) And to my drafter & muse---could not have put this together without your help: thanks so much for all the time you put into this...you are amazing!
I really could not do all these cool projects without the help of a lot of other talented people---so thankful for those that are willing to get involved & enjoy the process of making things happen :) I feel like you all make me better & I'm grateful in every way... Ooooh that was mushy, lol...I think I'll go back to the shop & grind on some steel now ; ) But, seriously, I appreciate everyone who has helped me along the way; I can't do it by myself, as you all know by now, hehehehehe ; )
