    Sounds like hell of a spread. Looking forward to seeing that finish as I can't quite wrap my head around it.

    I think it may be because of the different bearing edges?

    Sparkle or grain-through?

    grain through on the emerald with the black and white being solid colors. the black and white are going to fade into the green so it should look like an extreme fade of black to green to white. my whole idea behind the paint job is the theme of dark vs light good vs evil and so on. i wanted it to look like the white and black were pulling away from each other revealing nature (emerald) which is niether.

    Thanks. Definitely interested in seeing the final product. What are you doing with the hardware? Black on the batter and white on the reso?
