Robo, not that I know what I'm talking about here, but wouldn't you have a problem protecting the gold leaf? I suppose you could clearcoat it, but that wouldn't give you the natural gold leaf look. At least I don't think it would.

Btw, your signature leaves out my driving choice.

Looks very nice! Get a 3/4 view of the car from a bit further away so we get an idea for the overall effect. Again, looks very nice.

Ya might have a point,to a point.depending on the surface treatment you give the leaf after its laid down and dry,it still shows. it is much different than say,a piece of furniture.look at some of the leafed motorcycles and u will notice what I'm talking about. the car guys always clear coat the leaf. Ya gotta protect it.Any clear coat is suitable for this.

That mesh looks pretty good actually, can we get a picture from a good distance to see the overall effect?
