One minor project down, thirty to go.

So i took my mirrors off and sanded them down them down by hand primed and painted them.

Before:


Primed:



Painted:



Installed (sun was still out but not enough light/poor pictures):



Im am pretty damn happy considering it came out of a spray can and only cost me 22 bucks for paint, primer, and tape. Took me about three hours of prep and prolly an hour of painting. Thinking about clear coating it in a few days. Prolly not tho.

Looks good man, looks much better, and I cant wait to see how you tackle the rest of the stuff on your list, but toss some clear coat on there so you dont have to do it again later on

well that paint has the clear mixed in there. there is no way i would just paint it and leave it. Not wasting 4 hours of my life like that. :P

i think ima order some hinges for my rear gate and do those next.

Who wants to pay for them for me or send them to me for free if they have extras? o_O

PS. all those dirty smudges are just from my hands. Its not in the paint.
