    So I picked up this fig, which I like alot! But yeah, he's all kinds of dull!
    Simple repaint, I only addressed the parts that were dull gray, everything else I left alone. I sprayed him with chrome spray paint which takes DAYS to set and weeks after completion I still have to treat him with "kid gloves" or I'll leave fingerprints on him but MAN he's just so SHINY!!! :D 
    I know this guys' been done quite a bit, but as always, C&C appreciated.
    Enjoy!

    He actually looks shinier in person than in pics, but he's a MAJOR fingerprint magnet ;) 
    Hope that helps!

    He's completely dry now. For about two weeks though you dont want to grab anything with any kind of pressure, which means you dont assemble him for at least that long. Hes great now, just if you grab him, you gotta wipe the figerprints off :)
