Default CA finished HDPE

Hey guys! As I know you've seen, I've been doing a lot of CA finishes lately. This got me wondering if it'd be a good way to get a better finish on HDPE. I found....that it is. I used an old shooter from a couple years ago that was pretty rough and sanded it to 320. Then I added 20 coats of CA and smoothed and polished and here she is. Oh yeah, I also filled some voids with epoxy to make sure the surface was all smooth. I think it turned out well enough. Thanks for looking!

Well, look at that! I wouldn't even have tried that, I thought nothing really sticks to HDPE!
Great work!
