<bump for you>
did almost the exact same thing only didnt use krylon or bake or leave dry for 12 hours.



when I was polishing I used a bit for my demel and I guess I had too much caffeine because I kept slipping off the letters and going right through the tape on the sides that's why there are the random silver spots :[

it's been running fine for 1 week now with no over heating or smoke :]
