I like!! I might try it with red plasti-dip to see how like the look sitting in it, then ill do a good job with real paint.

Did you do then with satin or semi-gloss? It doesn't seen like much gloss.

Good work!

You can actually add regular paint to it and change the colors, unless your using aerosol cans. I used blue one time and added a drop or two of yellow paint to get olive drab green for my hunting gear.

Now if I would've went and got lime green spray paint and sit in the car spraying every thing, yes I would run off rice. But just that one peice looks good painted. I'm not gonna go crazy with it

I like the air vents painted. Did you paint them on the car? If you took them off, how did you get them off? Looks gooood.

I took them off to paint them. All you have to do is pull on the outer edges. The middle vents might pull out all together, but the snap back in so no worries.
