It should last a really long time... I sanded off all the stock paint, cleaned it with acetone, primed it, then hit it with color.mattdh said:looks good! wounder how long it will last? did you use any special paint? did you think about using the stainless steel handle covers off of ebay?
gw2doc said:Nice job man. I think ill try that myself this summer. Any specific primer?? Grit of paper? And what is that spray you speak of? I don't know anything about painting.... Did it turn out looking stock? Looks good from my blackberry anyways!
P.s. Any chance you gonna pull your seat anytime soon?
Great minds think alike!youngbro401 said:Awesome job!! I thought I was the only one who actually color coded my door handles while they were on the truck :lol: I hear so many people going through so much trouble to take them off, but if you tape them off and protect the rest of the body with something (newspaper like you did), and be REALLY careful, it comes out great. Thanks for sharing.
After it fully cures I may do that, good suggestion thanks.youngbro401 said:An additional step you might consider taking is to wet sand the coat of paint you have on there now and spray 1-2 coats of some clear spray paint over it. This will protect the color coat and provide a more glossy finish. (Completely up to you though)
