got a little more done today

left side of done, number two

right side just need one more hole in the lid for number five

back is good now

front needs two more holes cut for number three

lid is just sat in place for now

tomorrows jobs are cut the six holes in the bottom, fix the lid in place and try to get the rest of the holes cut in, then its prep and paint

thinking of going white on the outside and this on the inside with maybe some detail on the outside

well that depends what you mean by custom paint? because as this was/is my first welding/metal work project its no where near straight, i welded it to fast but lesson learnt on that one as well as some other things I've learnt along the way.

but my plans for paint, if i can get it straight enough are
option one

option two

third option is to do a 3 stage paint job on it with white base, purple detail like above and then 3rd stage would be purple intercoat all over

feel free to input on which option or any ideas as this was only ever a test project and no real plan at the moment to use it.

started making it straight with some filler, id really like it to be arrow straight before painting it






this was progress from yesterday as today ive not felt up to do anything and its been cold and windy outside so maybe tomorrow we can get it paint ready

Can you not paint it red sparkle like a Vegas dice? that, with a white interior would look incredible.
