Very nice paint job. I have only seen 2 or 3 like that. How about some specs on the cannons.

the art was done with stencils (i do alot of art in my free time so it kinda just carried over into this) the Betty stencil started out on the short black one (black Betty) and i just decided to use it on the other cannons as sort of a camo effect. the tall one is mine, the med one is my brothers and the small one i gave to one of my friends. i used vinyl auto interior paint and fusion and i must say the vinyl paint produced a much better finish and seemed to dye the pvc rather then paint it. im thinking about making another one soon but for propane injection. what kind of performance gain would i see? the short list of specs are at the top

Propane is a lot more consistent, clean burning and powerful, so maybe a 50 yard range increase? I know it doesn't sound like much, but it will when you have to walk that much further several times to find your spud. :P
