Priming torso and parts from Brad

Today was more of sanding and shooting another coat of primer on the torso. Then after more sanding and washing the torso, I applied several coats of Rustoleum hammered silver paint. After the first coat, I steel wooled the finish and applied the second coat. It looks great. But of course after the final coat is on, you start noticing a few things that you didn't see before. Not too bad.

While waiting for the first coat to dry, I took a ride to Brad's house to see his new robo-cop car and robo cop suit. They are exact replicas of the props used in the movie. Brad said a few cars almost went off the road gawking at him when he was driving it from Miami where he picked it up Friday.

Brad also sold me his robot arms, a few C3PO parts and several other props. And I borrowed a few of his B9 parts that I'm going to try to cast in resin. Since it takes so long to get parts from the club vendors, I may need to fabricate the rest of my parts and it's nice to have Brad's parts as a reference.
