I just taped it up. It seemed to be a bit faster. I sanded it, primed, and painted. I got a couple of chips here and there from road debris and whatnot and I just give it a little touch up and it looks brand new.

I'm not gonna post a pic of mine, internet sized pics all look good. I will say this: It's critical to remove ALL wax and silicone. Use a good paint prep chemical that removes silicone. I lightly sanded mine, I think with 220, sprayed about 4 light coats (first was really a mist coat) of Walmart's cheapest spray paint. So far, it has almost no chips after 3 years. I think I used a satin. Don't use flat, it'll hold dirt like a mofo. And gloss will show more defects.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
