    Nothing mate. It's gloss black so will just suit the theme as it is.

    Ultimately it doesn't matter bud. Barely anything gets underneath anyway, cause you spray from top down

    The flattened cardboard box it sits on generally stops 95% of spray from underneath.

    I used scotchbrite pads to scuff up the surface for the primer to cling to.

    Just be sure to wipe down the surface with ipa or rubbing alcohol before each paint layer to remove all traces of oil and finger grease. Also helps to rub down with a tack cloth to remove any dust that's managed to settle on the surface after wiping with ipa too for each step.

    Remember to add a layer of clearcoat after to protect the finish, and for the ultimate shine you can get the polisher on it once it's cured
