Custom box for radio transmitter - 1.5

Had a long drive to pick up two small cans of metallic blue paint last night, through rush hour traffic to get there before the store closed.

Next was cutting the middle 3" thick piece of foam to accept the radio transmitter unit. Happy with I am. I then used the thinner piece of foam (the original thicker piece wouldn't compress enough, plus the transmitter is a snug fit so the top piece is just in case it does move.....which it won't of course lol.

I sprayed up the box this morning in work.

Box sprayed blue, little disappointed with the finish. Think the PVA was watered down a bit TO much. So the blue hasn't taken to the primer, which has also soaked in to much. Only really visible now tho on the wood filler area's. Will give it another coat at lunchtime and see if there's any improvement. Otherwise this 'worn' look will have to start to grow on me lol.
