    Screw Mike, I wanna be like Chris when I grow up. The chop is awesome and the paint only makes it better. I will be using your chop thread as a guide for chopping my shoe. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the great work.

  24. Thanks again, everybody.

    I kinda said, I would paint the wheels in the first post, but here is a pic from today.
    FEIT RÆV :)
    I wet sand with 1000 grit, 1500 then 2500 grit.
    After that I use a wool pad on the buffer with course buffing compound, then a finer compound with a foam pad, after that, handglaze.
    Wax after 60 days.
