My first try at a custom paint job. Thanks to the sticky: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=172828 Very helpful and very well written instructions. What's lacking was step by step pictorial illustrations and that is what I'm hoping to contribute with the thread. I will update and add photos as I progress through the stages. (UPDATE: see post #107 for pictures of the finished product) The donor. As you can see it's pretty much beat-up. Perfect for a first timer to trial and error.
