    Honestly, I have no experience with coating fiberglass. Don't know how it would adhere with a porous fiber medium. Also would have to go with an air cure, I don't know of anyone who could fit a 10' rod in their oven.

    Really nice work, I can't say I'm a fan of the color scheme though.

    I like ranger green because army.
    We have the technology, but not the sobriety.
    I talk to myself because, at times, I require advice from an expert.
    We are all just one PBR away from being white trash and in trouble.

    I did some light research on "ranger colors" awhile back and found that historically they were pretty speckled. I finally settled on a light brown as probably being by far the most representative color of the colonial and Revolutionary War era rangers. But all I was trying to do was pick a shade I thought would trim out a line drawing of a Revolutionary War battle scene without taking one's eye away from the scene to the frame. Interestingly, a committee got together to frame a much fancier presentation piece related to the same battle at about the same time I was making my selection, and as far as I could tell from a photographic image of the finished piece later on, they came up with the identical color right down to or very near the specific shade. I was basically going for the natural color of deerskin and/or butternut, because "butternut" (or at least acorn) was a readily available natural dye... and I guess that committee came to pretty much the same conclusion. There's no such thing as a specific shade that is butternut, and deerskin isn't an exact color either, so I went for what I figured a nut dye would be like with considerable sun-fading.

    The peaceable part of mankind will be continually overrun by the vile and abandoned while they neglect the means of self-defense. The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world, as well as property.

    Only you could make a whole paragraph out of that nonsense and then carry me all the way to the end of it.

    Its because of the words nut dye.
    When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.
