Painted Octagon Ports

This evening I painted the octagon ports. After a couple of paint tests with both Krylon and Rustoleum chrome paints, I decided on the Rustoleum because I found it to be a bit more reflective. You won't mistake these for actual aluminum, but they're passable.

Alan Wolfson kindly provided some advice on shaping the top part of the booster cover. I think what I will do is recut a new set of booster cover tops that are closer to the proper size, and then use Alan's advice on sanding the required shapes down.
