Thanks!
No.. those are 2 of 3 Jem bodies that i did this year. I typically do a small batch each summer, and show them here before putting them up for sale. I have done quite a few actually.

Ill try to get pix up of the 3rd which i feel is the best swirl i have done....

Here is my RG7620 that i just put a Crunch Lab in! Rawk

Re: Watermelon Swirl

Now that I like!

One thing that I feel remiss to point out though: the bodies as they're CNC'd are not finished in the AANJ area. You need to hand smooth out that ridge there, but of course you'd have to do that before the paint goes on. It looks like you're doing some finish sanding on other areas of the body, but it would really set your bodies apart if you got the AANJ sorted as well.

Re: Watermelon Swirl

I'd make the orange a bit more red, but that's a brilliant SWIRL

A lot of people think that Nate Perle does quality work

Just sayin'. But I'm a major stickler for stuff like that. I only point it out because based on what I've seen, you're making the best swirls in the US (not counting ATD or Herc Fede) and I think it would be a nice finishing touch.
