I sure hope this comes out halfway decent after probably 5 hours of cleaning and taping.





First coat and second coat on. I used Rustoleum Hammertone paint. It gives it a "hammered" look that I am hoping will give it a rugged look, mask my mistakes and make a good surface for the grab handles. Kind of hard to see the texture in the pictures.







Going to crawl back in after work and look for any places that I missed or that need more coats.

That's all for now.

WOW thats some serious taping to block the paint. You are not able to unmount it out of the rig? You going to do the other side as well?
No way to take the cage out. It's mostly 2" DOM, 1/4" reinforcement plates welded to the floor and tucked up very tight all the way around.

I was able to open the doors to get some good angles. I also used there cool cans that allow you to hold the can at any angle and any orientation so I was able to hold it upside down and sideways to get under and around things.

Installed the harness bar and touched up some areas that looked like they needed another coat.





Trying to get a good shot of the texture that came out





Tomorrow - Pulling of the masking and putting the seats and harnesses back in! :rockon

I used a special can that allows you to hold it at any angle so I just got it up as far I could, turned it sideways and sprayed it the best I could. It seemed to get behind everything pretty well.
