I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I just dove in to the enclosure with no real plan. I just used paint and knobs that I already had on hand. I must've received the wrong quantities of resistors, so I used 1/4watt ones I had with a few that I was missing. This sounds pretty good.

I like that paint. Did it come out like that, or did you need to do something to it? Super clean build too. I give you an 8.5. I'd have given you a perfect 10, but you got impatient and tightened the nuts before the paint was fully cured.

Actually, I retract that. I'm the Paul Hollywood of the DIY pedal world. I don't give out the "hand shake" lightly.

For the paint, I didn't do anything special to it. I just used spray paint colors that I had on hand and dove in. I started light and then tried to "mist" over with the darker colors with some back n forth experimentation (there's light green, orange, light blue, and dark blue in there). Then few clear coats... yes I was a bit impatient haha, this was originally a personal build to go on a second pedalboard that I had to complete in a timely manner for upcoming shows.
