That's my problem as well! Construction gets me pretty dirty at times, and a darker color would be awesome! Can the products be purchased online? If so what's the best website to order from? Thanks and once again it looks great!

I can take a pic of the cans I used. I bought them at a local auto paint supplier. They have well over 50 colors to choose from. I just found this on ebay.

same stuff i used:

This is very similar to what I used. Same brand SEM.

The can says first coat of bulldog, wait 5 min. Second coat 15 min. then paint. I did 3-4 coats of color.

Re: Interior color change

Yes, that definitely looks great. Is this another JG first ?

When you do the other panels it would be nice to post a couple pics of the process.

Very impressive, it looks first class and flawless. Any idea how durable the paint is going to be as far as resistance to scuffs, scratches?

I gave it 24 hours to fully dry before installing. It sets up in an hour enough to handle the panels for re-install. I just wanted to be safe. So far i've only done one panel. The second one I did today. I painted some other parts and used a different adhesion promoter and they do hold up as well. I will repaint them withy the new stuff. Its really no that hard. You just have to take your time and tape everything off well. It came out better than I thought it would.
It's very nice and clean looking bro seriously props for you for doing so.
