    Howsit guys been a while since I posted here.

    I found a second hand grand the other day which I initially sold to someone who sold it on. I then noticed it going up for sale and I bought it back lol.

    needless to say it was not in very good condition externally the internals were upgraded recenly to the SO contacts.

    I then tried to find a solution to fix the aesthetics of the device and foun a guy that does hydro coating.

    Long story short sent it in last week and got it back today. I quite chuffed of how it turned out.

    Here are some pics:

    I always wanted to do this to my reo (I still need to buy the reo though)
    the easiest way should be using di-noc vynil by 3m
