I recently purchased two Freedom Top Panels, to use as a Bikini Top. These are hard to find, without buying the entire Hard Top set.
The ones I purchased are Khaki, and I want to have the outsides painted. I called the Dealer today, and got a quote of $550!
Nuff said there!!! I only paid $460 with UPS Shipping for the Panels, so I'm not going to pay more to have them painted, than I did to initially buy them.
Tomorrow, I'm heading over to my local Paint and Body Shop to get a quote. I'll see if they can get much closer to a more reasonable price.
If this option doesn't make the cut, I'm considering doing a Rattle-Can Paint Job, and top it off with a Clearcoat.
Has anyone done this on the Freedom Top Fiberglass Panels? Is this something that would properly adhere to the Fiberglass, or will it eventually chunk up and blow off?
I'm looking at using Krylon Fusion. It's a No-Prep Paint, and made to adhere to Plastics and Fiberglass.
I don't want to do a Fast Job
, and I don't want to do a Slow Job
, and I certainly don't want to do a Half-Fast
I just want to do a good quality Paint Job that will last me for a few years!
Any suggestions out there in the Jeep Realm, regarding Paint Brand, Quality, and Application, would be most appreciated!
