A favor please :)
If you can would someone here with a better computer & picture editor plus more talent than I posess change the color of Doug's phone? I am thinking about painting mine in some wild color like Lime Green or Yellow or Purple or something unusual. I figure a preview would help me decide but I do not posess any of the things to do it digitally.
Much Thanks ;D

As I was moving it into a sunny spot to dry, I dropped it on the cement.

Don't you just hate when that happens?!

It would have been much better if I dropped it before I bead blasted it, but noooo. It's like dropping your toast butter side down. Or when you wire a three phase motor you should have a 50/50 chance of getting the rotation right. I have a lot of catching up to do on those odds. Murphy is alive and well.

A favor please ... change the color of Doug's phone?

Something like these?  They're certainly colorful!

Looks like a paint job by photoshop.  Nicely done.

Well, I've decided to join the Toaster Club also.  This phone is so ugly, it's almost pretty.  I recently acquired this one - all I need to do now is decide what color to paint it.  I think I'm partial to the red.

Nice! Looks better than mine did ;D
I might be getting mine back from the painter today! After only 3 weeks! Only drawback to asking friends to do a favor, can't really rush them >:(
