You did great work on that pistol. I'd say you are right about the old finish not allowing the blue to take as well as you wanted. I like the distressed look personally. I'm not in the maniority either it seems. Look at what a new SRV git-fiddle brings. LOL!, it's like buying a brand new wore out instrument. But iut was Stevie Ray, I'd say that man is lifting rears off seats in heaven as we speak.
no harm, no foul!
thanks for the compliments!
at first, i was a little uncertain about the final finish, until my wife saw it, and she said it looked awesome. then after posting pictures of it here on the forum and all the positive comments, it really started to grow on me. at first i thought if i didn't like it, then i could always bead blast it again and do a Duracoat or sometning similiar later on. but i am really liking it now and i think i'll just leave it as is.
side note. i never even really knew who Stevie Ray was till after he had died and was watching a program about him. i cheated myself out of some really good music for a long period of time. SRV was an excellent guitarist and i do enjoy listening to him.
