Thanks steve we put in quite a few hours but we found that the more you do the more you learn. A big plus was the help of TJ lee,s information and others. I found that there is a acid that is used to color cement it was easy to use and the colors were great. You just spray it on wait, spray on some water and amonia mix to stop the acid action let dry and you have colors.

If you can color the inside of the tunnel as well it would help, as the grey really stands out and look at odds with the exterior. Otherwise very cool

Here comes forney#23 through the tunnel. We just completed the cribing on the inside of the tunnel it helps to hide the ugly cement also painted some spots black that i could reach other than that except for finishing the rear entrance it,s done.
