While i had the UV-20A out in the shop, I wanted to enhance the exhaust dumps with a little more true to life color. this isn't easy to do! I'm using water colors thinned out to almost a wash. These can be completely wiped off at any time. In fact, I have already wiped off the first try and started over. When stainless or chrome gets really hot, it usually turns a shade of blue with some yellow stains in there. This attempt is better than the first one! When, and if, I get a color I like, I will clear coat it with Polycryllic and that will seal it for good.

I wiped all the blue-ish paint off and tried again. This time mixed some silver and charcoal and made a pewter color. Looked OK, so clear-coated that. Will do for now.
