The quality of the workmanship is what makes the project! Nice job.

Red like that is a little bold for my tastes but I'm happy seeing anyone that cares about their gear and restores it for ongoing use. It certainly does look nice.

Might I suggest that the Fusion type plastic paint bonds well to the textured gray front baffle frame, which on most of the samples that I've seen not only fades but fades unevenly.

Fitting with your design theme you could restore the gray front frame parts to a a uniform satin or gloss black, (or any number of colors) as well. It's fairly painless to mask off just the frame and as a textured surface it's quite forgiving to paint.

I used the gloss black on a pair of XPL90's I was working on, and they turned out quite nice. There are pics posted here in one my threads if you are curious.
