It's Rust-Oleum Flat Protective Enamel - Black

It's like $3.27 at Lowes for a can. I used it on my floorboards and had plenty left over for a couple coats on the lights.




I used a really fine texture sandpaper and made the chrome look like crap.. then gave 'em each 3 coats.

Much better Mr. Green . That Rustoleum is a charm, since my Jeep's black to begin with, everything gets a liberal coating rofl .

i am making a list of what I need to paint. The lights are first cause they are the easiest. next would be the front cab's floor. I have drilled a couple more holes as water drains and it looks like shit anyway cause the person before me spray-painted it without scruffin it up first - now the bastige is peeling...no garage so I have to wait til I know it's gonna be nice out. After that I will be doin the hinges as they are starting to rust - which hinges you ask? all of them.... May be waiting til nest summer though - I should have a garage and ahouse by then Finger
