Silver Surfer Update

Silver shell

I think I've done as much with the shell of the surfer as I want to do, or have the patience for. There's still a touch of blue paint here and there, but it may wear in time. Next steps:redo the interior felt, put the badges back, and put the typewriter back together.

I've learned a lot from this project, not the least of which is the amount of effort it takes to strip the paint from a typewriter! I've got a new appreciation for the level of effort involved in the other silver-surfer projects I've seen online.

Keeping a close eye!

So, what are you thinking of for the finish? I'd love to see someone chrome plate one of their machines.

Hmmmmmmmmm...... HMMMMMMMMm......

Now I'm thinking.
