That was harder than it looks - the paint instructions say to apply three heavy coats - with a 5 minute wait betweeen them.
So heavy that the surface really needs to be horizontal. I did the two louvered sides vertically, and one side had a pretty good
run. The top was originally undersprayed, and portions didn't wrinkle. I tried to touch it up, but everywhere the touchup feathered
out, it was too thin again. I reshot that entire surface, very heavy, all at once.

I did this in a paint hood at work, so it took a good 15 minutes to get it back to a shop where I did gently heat gun it. I suspect
it would have kicked off eventually, but just to be sure...

My guess is a summertime shoot outside, in the sun, would work best. Thanks for the compliment!

Thumbscrews for the cover - I used birchwood casey brass black to take the shine off them:
