That'll screw up your eyes for a few hours. It doesn't take long before you start seeing double and triple !
Looks wild !

Port t & u touch up




Start the shadow tomorrow , problems are;
i don't know how long to wait before the new paint can be taped so i don't ruin it.
not sure if if it's worth trying to keep the gap between the blue and black shadow.
i suck at this, but managed to not mis spell nothing.
about 6 hours taping each side.

rustoleum is saying 4-6 days before the paint can be wet sanded so i'll give that before the shadow can be painted.
At that point think i'll mask the gel all the way around then mask, paint and pull tape off the letters for each shadow 1 at a time.

the edge gaurd wasn't supposed to show up till the 22nd

i followed the razorblade marks from the original shadowing exactly with fine line and brushed on rustoleum gloss black, peeled the tape as i went along. Do the other side tomorrow. Is what it is, couldn't be sanded off, every letter and shadow the gelcoat is all sliced up.
