    In my '05 Tacoma, I painted a few things with duplicolor vinyl and fabric. It looked great at first, but in the high traffic areas, it didn't last too long (even with proper prep, sanding, painting, dry time, blah blah blah). Been wanting to do the same in my '12, but I've been skeptical. I've heard about "baking" the paint. Does it honestly help the appearance and longevity that much? What's you overall thought on the SEM color coat? I'm thinking about looking into their high gloss clear and applying that over top. Would appreciate any insight. Thanks. Looks great btw!

    it doesn't even take balls. just patience. try it!
    thanks bud!
    nice and subtle. i like it!
    baking only really helps gloss paint get nice and smooth. so far the SEM is doing its job but the guy at the paint store does recommend using clear on the high traffic areas to prevent chipping.
    thank you!

    As I get older everything that is shiny or reflective grabs my eyes and bothers me, so I blacked out anything I could remove, I still need to do the steering wheel. I used Flat Black 2 part epoxy paint and my Binks sprayer.
