painted skid plate

okay so i noticed some rust on my skid plates, and figured i would sand them down and paint them with rust check paint before the winter..

it started out like this..

( i know the pictures are not the best, don't know why, camera was acting funny )







and turned out something like this..







i attempted to use the red paint shown in the pictures, but when i started to spray the side to see how it would look, it looked somewhat pink, and so i decided to be safe and go with a metal looking black..

what do you think?

Re: painted skid plate

thanks for all the feed back

nah the bottle of water was there to take off all the dry dirt, lol, and yea i suppose in case something went terribly wrong haha,

the skid plate was roughly $250, and the paint was $10, and the sand paper was $2.99 haha, those prices are CAD prices,

with a little elbow grease and some time, it turned out not bad at all, now its time i work on the rear skid plate after school on monday
