got a new hardtop, thinking about painting it!

hi everyone!

i got pretty lucky and found a hardtop for my '05 LJ this past weekend for $400. what a steal!

i'm looking to get it painted or paint it myself and was wondering if anyone with a LJ has a painted hardtop? I'd love to see some photos and hear some experiences if you painted it yourself! Mine's the silver '05 unlimited and from what i read, apparently silver is that hardest to match to the factory color?

Several people have rattle canned Krylon Fusion on with great results.

I'd go black or try the Satin Pewter Gray maybe.
