    So I've decided to try and quit smoking. Today's my 3rd day without a smoke. Yesterday I was roaming around the house and saw one of the old BIG LOTS Knock-Off Yellow Devastator that i've had for a while now, just sitting on a shelf in the spare bedroom.

    I decided to go to Wal Mart and buy some paint and brushes and what not. I figured it might be something to do to keep my mind off of wanting a smoke. And it's definately helped.

    This was the first time I've tried repainting and slightly modifying something, so I know it's not perfect. But I had a great time doing this. He still needs some paint touch-ups here and there. The purple is actually metallic and looks pretty cool in person.

    Anyways, cheers

    *Excuse the bathroom, it was the best lighting i could get.

    yikes. quitting smoking is a tough feat. good luck with it. you should try some Chantrix, it's 70% effective ;) 

    customizing makes me want to smoke even more often.
