    added a clear coat for that clean look

    not too bad for someone who has had no experience painting just very simple. I was trying to tape off the letter but i had no luck. That shit was hard i guess i need more practice.
    But tell me what u guys think?

    Looks good.

    But you should try painting the letters back to black, or even red. If you're having trouble taping everything, just tape over all the letters, then cut away the tape where you want the colour to show through. Mask off the rest and spray away.
