Painting wasn't that great. It's so dusty and breezy in Nevada you have to paint indoors, but I have no way of doing that, so I just hope for calm days.
I thought sanding the caps down with 220 grit would be enough to make the paint stick, but I was wrong.
So they got sanded down for round two.
The metal bits turned out okay. I used VHT glossy roll bar paint covered in rustoleum clear coat for extra shine and UV protection. As I was painting them, they were basically lint rolling the atmosphere around them.
They turned out great despite all that.
Round two was much better. I had to pull hair and spider webs out of the wet paint as I was spraying them, which really pissed me off, but they don't look too bad. At least my roll bar looks worse
