Haha. Well as long as your not touching the ring and pinion. I hear swapping spiders is pretty easy and you can't really mess it up as long as you follow the directions

Spray 3-4 light coats of Krylon Fusion (I used red), after it dries scuff it with a Scotch Brite pad just enough to take the shine off of it, wipe it with a damp cloth, spray it with the Duplicolor. It took 3-4 coats to get a solid red.

It's only been a few weeks, but it's holding up fine so far.
How hard was it to paint the doors. Did you remove the doors to paint or the panels or just tape off the handles and window crank and paint

Yeah, remove the door panels. They are easy to get off. Screws around the edge, two screws in the handle and the rest is just those auto interior clips.
Windows crank just has a standard clip, flat head screw driver and small needle nose pliers and it will be of in seconds.

Closer shot of just the door.

Hid my stereo amps in the center console.
One is a 400 watt, 4 channel for the mids/highs, the other is a 800 watt mono for the sub.






Console slipped right back over them and no one can see them.

Coverking.

They're ok. I don't have any complaints just yet.
I'm afraid they will fade quickly though. the jeep had a set in it just like them when I ought it and the were gray and pink.

But I got the whole set for $250...we'll see what they do in the long run.
