Custom R6 Mirror

My friend April etched this thing for me as a gift. Like a boss. I'm going to get it framed and hang it in my room for now and eventually my mancave in the future. Pretty sweet IMO. Took her 12 friggin hours. She did it in ONE day. Can't imagine..... It's 20x38

^this. I have no idea of the process. Or how long it takes to do. It is in fact an etched mirror.

Agreed. Not to mention....how often do you see an R6 mirror? Lol. Team mirrors all day, beer, cigarettes, nascar, all the time....But this is the only one like this I've ever seen =)

Its basically sand-blasting the glass. The more detail the longer, more tedious it gets.

Sick lookin mirror yo.

Re: Custom R6 Mirror

No it simply cannot be. Lol. Not to mention you don't even get to mess up once. Get lazy and crack the whole thing? Yeesh. She could have easily got $200 for it. I say more but that's her estimate. Hell you can pay almost that for a mirror that size alone!!! Friggin cool of her to give it to me as a gift. If anyone wants one lemme know. Certainly makes a garage or mancave complete.
