Unzipee, You asked for it.

So, I have had the horse on my grille painted flat black for about 6 months now and because I do alot of freeway driving it had become chipped. So I had decided that it was time to repaint it and unzippee wanted pictures of how I did it, so here are the pictures enjoy!

The first step was taking off the grille




Now it was time to start masking the grille to prevent oversoray on the parts that I didnt want painted





This is the paint I used. ULtra flat black paint, and a protective flat black enamel. I tried finding a clear enamel that would protect the paint but I couldnt find anything that wouldnt make it glossy, I didnt want gloss.



This picture is after 3 coats of ultra flat black spray paint.



This is the completly finished horse after 2 coats of flat black protective enamel spray paint.




Hope you enjoyed it!

That's awesome man. Excellent write-up. Thanks!

Looks good, and it looks like you used a decent camera to take those pictures as well.

Why do you say that redfire? Other than the obvious, it just plain sucks, the fit and finish is horible, and the pefromance is less than sub par.
