    Paint.

    Took 320 fine grit sandpaper to the handles. Used a tack cloth to clean it of any dust.

    Three light coats of primer

    Three light coats of rustoleum semi-gloss

    No clear coat... which will probably end up being their demise.

    Hey... did you paint your exhaust tip? Or is that just the lighting?

    This is what I plan on doing (lest the TRD detail)... cause mine is just a rusted piece of crap right now... looks awful.

    From xxTheFolioxx's build:

    Things I've learned:

    1. Spring in Colorado is not a good time to spray paint anything. It's always breezy and there's always some sort of pollen or tree part flying around.

    2. I really need some indoor space to set up a make-shift paint booth. (see #1)

    3. I am nowhere near patient enough to ever be a good spray painter.

    4. Mechanics aside, "good enough" is fine by me (see #3)

    So I couldn't stand the gray/blue shifter boot(s) in contrast with the black console assembly and trim. So I vinyl dyed the shifter boot(s) black

    [​IMG]

    Installed (looks so much better in person than in this pic). Loving the black shifter boot(s)

    [​IMG]

    Next on the list to potentially ruin spray painting was the faded cowl.

    Before:

    [​IMG]

    After:

    [​IMG]

    Also did my wiper arms, as you can (hopefully) discern above ^

    At this rate, it'll happen quickly.

    I'm going to do a lot more black, with the exception of the top of the dash (I think)

    That blue/gray color is perfect for having its reflection blend in to the asphalt when it's sunny out (does that make sense?) Plus a black dash in Colorado's sun is not fun.

    But the door trim and the rest of the dash trim, etc will be black.

    Even thinking about doing to the door carpet.

    And eventually will replace the interior carpet with black

    Looks good! I'd take the mudflap brackets off though to clean up the look a little. Just a suggestion

    Yeah, I'm about to go outside, take all the mud flap brackets off, clean them up and spray them down with rust reformer primer (just in case).

    Take off and clean up all the mud flaps real well (something I don't really incorporate into my normal wash routine) and give them a nice 303 treatment.

    Thanks.

    FYI if you ever do this, most primers are not heat rated enough for the exhaust.

    So I just wire brushed it, cleaned it, then sprayed the high heat (grill paint - 1200 degrees F) directly on it.

    I'll let you know how it holds up.

    In case you're wondering these are the conditions under which I'm trying to spray paint... on top of constant breezes.

    Pulled all the dash trim pieces out, primed and painted them black. I'm kind of hung up on whether or not to keep them semi-gloss or not. They're glossier than the OEM trim pieces (stereo faceplate, gauge cluster surround, etc) but I don't want the grungy look of flat. I like the ease of clean up with the semi-gloss so far. Maybe I'll try to find something in between flat and semi-gloss... Is that matte or satin?

    Below is a before shot... they're drying in the garage because of all the cottonwood flying

    ^^ I would do that too. Change my brown int > black. But I think the smell would kill me especially with the summer heat comin.
