        The first time i tried it i used the $99 wagner gun from bunnings, but came out so thick it just layered on, next one
        was same gun but the $49 fine attachment, was about 50% better, But best of using a normal spray gun, 20psi 1.8 tip .
        i'll do this write up / video this weekend

              That looks surprisingly cool, probably because it was properly sprayed as opposed to a can job like most flat black drift rockets you see these days.

              Does it come in other colours? What's the plan beyond 6 months if that's how long it lasts?

                          Are gearboxes a thing with these ND's, or are you just unlucky?

                            Out of curiosity - what turbo kit? What kind of power are they making boosted?

                              Yeah gearbox's are pretty shit in these things, Ended up going with the AVO turbo kit, around 5-6 psi, 50% increase

                                Really keen to see how the turbo kit goes. Only thing I would consider selling my SE for at the moment is an RF with a similar turbo kit installed.

                                Shame to hear about the gearboxes. What's the weak point?
