Got about half the build (3 coats high solids urethane topcoat, 3 to go) of the thickness of film I need on the finish before I cut and polish, ebony is very porous with "cracks" in the surface to fill.

Made up a divider/reflector for the early Euro front turn signal assembly. Required some "tooling". I use the word loosely!;)
