    That looks good. Are you planning to spray the colour before scraping the binding, and then clear over the lot? I'd be interested in which paints you're using (aside form the primer) and where you...

    After several days, things have certainly settled down.

    Everything seems to be reasonably square when measured separately, but that can't be the case given the gap between the heal and the body! ...

    I have a JRM-1DC on it's way to me. I've ordered it without the hardware pack, as I usually replace pretty much everything anyway. While it's in transit, I've been doing some research on wrap-around...

    Thanks McCreed, that gives me food for thought. It sounds like an HVLP touch up gun is the way to go. I think I might keep an eye out for a good used compressor. My next build is a JRM-1DC, and I'm...
