Re: Brother Corey has more paint questions!!!

the key is to sand them down VERY smooth or you will see the groves in them. Maybe color sand and recoat a couple times. I would keep it dull, non clear coated.

Re: Brother Corey has more paint questions!!!

from what i (vaguely) remember, he said that they were sanded, painted, and clear coated.

Mine look excellent glossy.

Re: Brother Corey has more paint questions!!!

Here are some of mine. I just used Rust-O-Leum Mettallics for mine. In retrospect, I got off very lucky because I didn't sand or anything. I just washed the parts off really good and sprayed in the garage. Be sure and give each part at least a day to dry.

Re: Brother Corey has more paint questions!!!

My radio bezel came painted that color from the factory...:dunno: ...so I just matched everything else to it. The "Mustang" came out perfect.

Yeah I know, I hate putting that pic out, but it's the only one I have of the steering wheel/gauges . Those pics on cardomain are so old, the interior hasn't changed much, but the exterior... No new pics until after my car has the sex change.
