ok if i were you i would have some cool graphics. i had an idea of putting a alein face pop out and have the eyes nose and mouth be acrlyic so u can see through it and have some red neons in there wich would b sick. now first sand it down like they said but also take the everything out and then put the screws back in. so that paint doesnt get inside where the screws go or else your gonna strip the thread and thats a bad thing to do. its late where i am so ill give u some more descriptive stuf tommorow.
