Hi Douglas,
Looks good. How have you managed to reduce the ' wrinkle ' lines in the clear badge?
Are the silver crescents a matt paint or chrome ?
 
Charlie,

You would have to ask Protolabs, they printed it, it is a resin print.

The silver is a metalic flake that is in a testers model paint kit.

Rick like I said in an earlier post that the chrome pen works best on the outside of something. Not sure why. If you want a chrome look on something where you look through something clear the best thing I've found is Spaz Stix 10000 Ultimate Mirror Chrome. They suggest their black paint a a backer. Not to bad for paint out of a bottle. And that is without the black on the back side.

I could sure use an aluminium adapter ring like the one that came with my SPF.

It fits between an original style wheel and a Snap Off quick release hub.
