Well that 1 can of chip guard was $25 and the primer was $15, the 2 cans of silver was $15.

I put 3 coats of primer waiting 10 minutes between each, then sanded it smooth after an hour of dry time. Then 4 coats of silver 10 minutes between each, then like 3 coats of clear. It took a while but I had plenty other stuff to do in the meantime.

Still have to put on an new exhaust tip and put the toolbox back on after a fresh coat of paint, should look spiffy
