Thumbs up Paint dripping wet!

So as some of you know I'm a mobile electronics install technician... Car customs is the game... Anyhow.. I was getting bored with the nickel plating and clear base on my 40'' KM.. So I decided to jazz it up a bit... I used jet black auto paint to paint the pipe.. Stem was primed, although it took the paint as more of a matte look, but verrrrry smooth finish. Base wasn't primered, took the paint very well. Very slick as well. Left a window open to monitor smoke density.. And watch it swirl about Hose is a black and yellow KM, with a black velvet hose cover.. Any parts exposed to high heat were left exposed, such as the tray and wind cover.. Anywho, tell me what you think of the fresh paint! Enjoy!

is the paint toxic if so i think you should not have spared it from the tray holder up.

Yes the paint is toxic. Only cooler parts of the hookah, that remain under standard engine temperature are good to go! Which is virtually everything but the bowl and wind cover.. Thanks! I love the new look! It's very refreshing

That was the original plan, but I couldn't tape it off that low without getting wrinkles in the tape... Cause I only had brown tape and not painting tape... But that's okay.. I know how much water it needs.

Oh, no. I didn't clear coat it. Just primed, and used auto paint from a rattle-can. Worked just fine. But doesn't give it that depth of Clear coat. Still good though!
