For those unaware, I've been doing a big custom paint job on a JVC RC-M90. This has been documented in great detail here:
http://www.boomboxer...php?f=47&t=8227

This project has been a genuine labor of love and I'm super-happy with the results! Today I did a photoshoot with her exclusively to try and capture all the details and angles.

Hope you guys enjoy them!

other than OMG outfriggenstanding :-D
have a comment and a question -

the first picture - with the 'non-competing' cassette --looks even better to me that the rest
which have the super-color tape

and - how did you end up doing the chrome strip below the tuner dial

Well, no matter where in the world that boombox is, it will be immediately recognizable as the GluBox. One of a kind fer sure.

Thanks Ira! I think that Memorex is PERFECT for the radio too. But I love using the fruity open reel tapes for photos too. That's why I did both. Some of the pix may seem repetitive but because the pink paint is fluorescent it appears different colour from different angles and lighting.

The chrome on under the tuner dial and on the tweeter surrounds is exactly what you suggested for it: chrome pinstriping tape for cars!!

That stuff is perfect for any chrome finish, thanks again for that idea.



Rock On.

Working on Gf-999 custom design for Terry next!
I'm not sure for myself though, I'll just wait to be inspired by something like I did with this one I think.



Rock On.

Now all you need is a white sportcoat and a skinny pink leather tie!

I am going to post the "before" shot for good measure...

This radio would make a great high gloss color poster! It is so 80's!

Your level of detail is amazing. I have just spent the last 20 minutes looking closer and closer at those pictures.

pushing the limits for sure!

I just love that radio....but those shoes are equally off the hook!
