Fantastic, You even got a great finish :) You might want to spray some clear coat paint over the signature if that hasn't already been done though, Signatures can wear off if not taken care of. Any chances for a demonstration video? :)

It must have been quite a steal, How does it sound? (Oh and is there any clear coat paint over the signature?)
