Atari 5200 Jr. Console

It's just about finished!

Continuing on...

I used this Krylon "X-Metals" paint since I thought it'd look kinda cool to have a metallic blue console. The idea is you spray the silver basecoat down, then the clear blue on top.

It took alot of coats of the silver to mask the bondo.

Coat #3

Coat #6... looks like it's about as good as it gets. Unfortunately, a bit of the bondo texture came through. Next time, I will know how to fix this problem so it doesn't occur again.

I sprayed the buttons at the same time as the case.

The bottom after painting.

I didn't get any pics of the in-process blue paint, but it took alot of coats to get it an even thickness. Here's the top after the blue.
