I made it at TechShop! www.techshop.ws.

ABS is only available in a couple of colors. This is how you can paint it to whatever color you want.

Step 1: Prep

Many sources suggest scuffing the smooth side with steel wool or sandpaper, you may want to do that but I had good results without it. I did wash the plastic thoroughly with simple green. You can also use dish soap that doesn't have hand softeners,
<p>Cool product placment/spam bro!</p>
TechShop asked us to post things related to projects we're working on, so there it is. Since most TechShop members work on stuff they sell, I'd expect there are many products visible on Instructables from different members.
<p>Clean, paint. Simple.<br>What type of paint, or what grade is recommended? (Not asking brand name here, but the specs please.)</p>
<p>Great project. I still working on painting plastics, this will help.</p>
