I might be wrong but did you primer with black and a lighter color and then spray the same color overtop?  I do that with interiors and it has the same affect...Nice work...

what i did was primer it with a light grey primer and then based the whole thing in a light green metallic base coat and then all the tedious work began

How do you set up the double blade? I tryed it a while back, and the blades were to close together. tryed to shem in between but no good. I want to do it, how?
