Re-painted my mount covers

Postby yadfak22i » Sun Aug 30, 2009 7:10 pm

Well seeing as tho the weather is pants on this bank holiday, i thought it was time to spruce up the plastic covers on my alt-az mount, so off i went to get some paint, i wanted to keep the sky watcher logo silver so i filled the writing up with play-do and got cracking. After 4 coats of black bumper paint its looking alot better than the scratched silver cover. So once the paint has fully cured i will put 2-3 coats of laquor on.
