$25 GT500 tb ... Paint attempt fail

Ok so I picked up a GT500 tb for $25 and attempted to polish it to a mirror finish... Well that resulted in frustration and a broken drill. So I then decided to just paint it high gloss black... Went to auto zone and picked up black primer, high gloss black, and clear coat... I did the primer good (one coat then dropped the stupid can an broke the nozzle off so I could only do one coat... I let it dry and applied a coat of the high gloss black... Put way too much on and now it looks like **** and I don't have sand paper... Plus 3 small flying bugs are stuck in the paint :-/ fml

That sucks, what are planning on doing with it now? At least it only cost you $25 for that tb.

You could get it powder coated with a design, theres a pwder coating company about an hour away that can powder coat flames, skulls, wood pattern, diamond plate and a bunch of other cool patterns on stuff, I didn't even know you could do that with powder coating
