My first sunburst


Gold Member
Been working too much and have not built anything this year. This Radio King virgin shell has been on the bench for at least a year now, so today I committed to picking a colour combo. I have never attempted a sunburst, an after a few go through attempts I arrived here. The colour is still curing and it will get a full high gloss clear when ready.

Looks good. Having a means to spin it certainly helps.

Now it matches your grinder - ha ha.

Gloss clear coat will really make it pop.

I love sunburst finishes but that shell in it's raw form was gorgeous. I would have given it a few coats of semi-gloss oil to amber it up a bit and kept the hardware chrome.
Really nice job, though.

From the pics of the grinder, it looks like you sprayed the burst, but the actual drum looks like you used a brush. There's an inconsistency in the transition between colors that I really like, and the overall result looks very cool. Nice job!
