Anyone painted their.....
 
SRT mesh insert?

I noticed parts on mine are getting faded. Will probably shoot a few layers of black and clear on it.

Just wondering if anyone have done it?

not much of a difference IMO, being black. cleans up the front a bit, i hate the unpainted plastic look lol. Might be a bit bold with the other colors, (red,white)

Guess I got something to do 2morrow :D

i only sanded the 7 rings a bit. the rest of it was painted as is.

adhesion promoter
primer
color
clear

2K clear like this ...... 2K clear coat: Spraymax

its LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE FACTORY....be careful....lots of fumes.

Still consider myself a rookie painter, and the warning from you and Aaron got me a bit hesitant lol.

As Rob says Dave, hang the mesh so you can get to all nooks. 2K is safe enough if you're only doing small jobs now and again, but I would still recommend a good respirator and plenty ventilation :thumbsup:

The mesh is a straight forward enough job, you shouldn't have any problems with it.

I used Hammerite Direct to Galvanised Metal Paint to do mine, cause I was lazy :D
