paint and finish so far seem to be of good quality, especially considering the complexity of the job. not quite squeaky smooth show car factory finish quality, but far from dimply orange peel. only imperfections i've noticed are due to existing scratches/dimples on the surface, plus a little clear coat pooled up on a corner. nothing major - looks quite nice really.
seems to resist smudgy fingerprints pretty well. i've only noticed smudging a bit on the wrist pad area. can be wiped off of course. but i have a tendency to keep my hands clean and avoid typing whilst chowing down on fries etc...
the wait was about a month + a week. this was during the xmas and new years holidays. so call it a month.
cyan is the color you see from right angles; purple takes over from all other angles. in other words, it looks more purple than cyan most of the time.
