Default Painted hardtop success!

Hi all

Bought a jeep a few weeks ago I am very happy with but always planned to paint the hard top to black.......did it yesterday using a paint called Krylon fusion I've heard a lot of american jeep drivers use - great paint it turned out to be!

So thought I'd share a couple before and afters....

Looks great, might get inspired and refresh my faded black top. Have any good "how to's" you could link to?

Cheers! I have one I found before it was done......although all we did was - give it a wash, wiped it down with meth spirits,then taped off the windows and rest of the body. I know a lot of people would completely sand it down first, but the paint I used you don't need to do that unless you really want to, if it fades in a few months time I'm not too fussed it can just be re sprayed..it's for out bush anyway! Here is the link I found though! http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f140/...rd-top-742127/

have fun

Looks great, can you get it in light metallic khaki??

I've had a lot of success with ESP (easy surface prep) when painting plastic or other smooth surfaces.

Digging up old stuff here, but I'm just wondering if the Krylon Fusion has held up over the years?
