Before & after:Painted fenders,mirrors,handles,license plate frame & bumper ends

Here are my before and after pics. I prepped and painted the mirrors, fenders, bumper ends, handles, license plate frame & front jeep cover.

Very nice! I actually just posted a question in the general info section about getting ready to do the same thing to my TJ.

What did you use to paint all the parts and how many cans did it take do complete all the parts?

Thanks for the compliments guys. I used 400 grit sand paper, cleaned with soap and water (Dawn). Then I used alcohol wipes to make sure the area was clean. I did about 5 coats on every piece and used 2 cans of Krylon Plasic paint gloss black.

Hope this helps. It took me about 1 day by myself from removal to cleaning to put back on. Taking my time.

Thanks
Mike

Awesome job, mike!

I'm glad you posted this with the pictures, I was just looking at my jeep from the living room and decided I needed to paint my fender flares.

For the sand paper, did you just put a little pressure to just scuff the surface a little or did you put some serious power behind it?

Just light pressure. You just want to make sure all of the old dirt and grime are off plus scuff the surface for the paint to adhere to.
