My second rod build. I tested myself with this one and I learn alot along the way. Had a major decal issues and has to scrape it down to the blank with a razor blade and repair the decal section. Since it's a matte finish, the paint was not able to be saved in that area, so I have to come up with something to cover that area and I think it turned out ok. Other then that, I think I'm happy with it.

Many images below if you like to see them.
