Has anyone ever painted a Hard top before?
I just got one from a friend today. I have a Bright Silver Rubi and the top is off of a Black Rubicon. Though it looks a litte grayish to brownish... I want to paint it black but don't have a paint gun or anything. I know how to paint but just have a few Questions:
Will spray do the trick on our tops?
Will I chip off and look like [email protected]*t in a few months?
What paint would be best?
What is the best way to prep the surface if it can be done?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Where did you have it painted and how much did it cost you? If you don't mind me asking. I agree about with the black and heat... but just think that mine will look a hell of a lot better black than the color it is now. and how did you post the pictures up in your message? I think mine is around the same color as yours but I have silver paint so I think it clashes a little but then again I am getting picky so....yours looks good though.
