That looks great, what do you think of the flour event orange? I have found that color tough to make look even.

This was the first time I ever used Fluorescent paint and it was not too bad, but I did follow the instructions and used a white undercoat. The only uneven are I found is where the fins and the BT intersect.

Could you explain your use of Windex ? A wetting solution for peel and cuss stickers ? Or waterslide decals as well ?

I don't use Windex with waterslide decals, but do use it with peel and stick decals. I put Windex on the area where I want my peel and stick decal to be placed. The Windex allows me to reposition the decal and once in place I squeeze out the water and bubbles and allow to dry. If you apply the peel and stick decal without Windex, you are unable to reposition without damaging the decal or the paint underneath.
