I thought I would try out my idea from above on the trim pieces that go around the mesh windows. If I mess these up all I would have to do it sand them and start over. This would be a lot eaiser than starting over on the side panel. I grabbed a block of wood, put some fine sandpaper around it and started to lightly sand the paint off the trim pieces.

I put on the primer, lighter green/tan paint, and then hit it with the darken green paint.

Here it is sitting atop of the side panel. You can see that the side side panel and the rest of the case will be darker. In the next update I will show you what I did to make the trim pieces look like they have been abused as the whole case will get this “Battle worn” effect look.

Let me jump backwards a bit…I had painted the frames and then added a sliver coat to them as I thought that was like the pictures, but after close study I was wrong. It more of a green color. So you may see the frames painted silver in some shots :-)

Ok lets jump back to the here and now…to help give the satin finish paint a little less shine I took a cleaning pad and lightly went over the entire trim piece.

Next I took the magic sanding block and looked at how this side of the case may get hit or damaged.

I then skimmed the block across it to make the marks. I pressed harder in some areas than other if I thought it would get more abuse.

The trim piece on the top has not been touched but the one on the bottom got the special treatment.
