After doing some rearranging in the garage I decided to paint my buckets and shrouds. I am getting pumped after seeing how these turned out. I ordered a set of putco leds for my fogs and some V3 Triton switchbacks to go along with the build.
I use oven cleaner to strip the chrome off of my shrouds and reflector buckets...
The shrouds are a glossy black underneath the chrome.
Next I used the oven cleaner on the reflector buckets.
It only took about 10 minutes and 2 coats of the oven spray to get the chrome off. The reflector buckets only took one coat and about 5 minutes for the oven cleaner to work it's magic.
I then sanded the shrouds and buckets with 800 grit sandpaper. I used krylon fusion satin black for the reflector buckets and rustoleum camo ultra flat black for the shrouds.
I have my night shades coming tomorrow so maybe I can get them done up then. What are you guys doing to prep your corner reflectors for night shades? Just sanding and painting? What grit sandpaper are you using if I should be sanding it first and should I wet sand or doesn't it matter? I know a lot of questions but I want it to turn out perfect. I'll continue to update you guys with my progress as I get my materials in.
