If memory serves me,
I cleaned the hardtop and dried it real well.
Lightly sanded it with a scotch brite pad. It was a brown one from AutoZone in their paint department.
Blew the dust off with my air compressor.
Let it sit for a while in the garage to settle and dust.
Used a tack cloth (AutoZone as well) all over it.
Masked the glass with green tape and newspaper.
Used a second tack cloth where my hands may have touched the hard top.
Started spraying the top and and then sides like you would with a paint gun.
Lots of strokes releasing the trigger while still using a spraying motion. (Followed the instructions on the can regarding drying times.)
Repeated until I went through three cans of Krylon.
Take your time and be sure to prep.
