I have to say as well... I kinda like it. As many others have said, not something I would personally do with mine. But I do appreciate the time and talent that goes into something like that! Very nice!

well if you'd have the willpower to redo it all over again more props to ya..haha

Keep it! I LOVE it. It goes with your car lol. But yea, Clear coat it, and ell it on eBay with a starting bid of -150-200$, I'm pretty sure some hipster will see the price tag and will e like "This Demitri guy must be an underground artist!" Really tough, give it a shot!
