Looks good in that last photo :thumbup: . has it bonded to the blank ok? no weakness? Does it lift when peeling masking tape off?

I have the perfect components for a top cosmetic match with the blank and your avet

why not ,you have got to have some fun as you cant look at it in the sun , you can do a lot with it as a base for candys or pearl crystals in some pretty wild effects on custom rods .

Jethro this the site with all the info you will need ,iam lucky to work in the trade and get a lot of freebies and demos of the newest additives on the US market ,these can be added to the second or first coat of epoxy when you want some wild effects ,most need sun to hit them and then they jump out at you , the chrome rod is not what most would want but im not like most .

How much preparation did the blank require. Does it want to peel off. I wonder if the shadow chrome look can be achieved. I reckon this would look awesome on a particular blank I am very fond of

it is as tough if not tougher than the clear coat on up market blanks , shadow chrome can be achieved by using less gloss on the first base coat .the higher the gloss on the first coat the brighter the chrome is at the end .we did tame the blank down a touch as it was burring your eyes in the sun ,

Mate if you really wanna free the devil and get my creativity run wild then contact me. I will need to know what kind of fishing you aiming it for. think of the options; rhinestone encrusted butts, gold chain wraps and furry grips :biggrin2: . You will have to restrain haraka from burning my workshop down
