    What paint

    Want to paint my grab handle and top hood cover from orange to black. Suggestions on what type of paint to use. Can i use out of the can spray paint or should i go with a air compressed sprayer?

    FYI, the grab bar costs like $45 new. I would just replace it with one from an 07 RXP instead of painting it.
    The hood is easy.

    Re: What paint

    I bought my grab bar off another member and painted my glove box and hood with spray paint from wal mart. I did sand and primer them first.

    Its easier than you think. Patience is key. The textured plastics, like the seat cowl and grab bar are a bit more difficult. I would recommend just buying an 07 grab bar because its so cheap. Not to mention, the grabbing and pulling on it might wear the paint. The top lid and glove box are easy and look much better when matching the rest of the hood.

    What paint

    Anything can be done however the only sensible way to do it would be with a paint gun and if you're not proficient at using one you'll blow paint everywhere and make a mess. I would also not recommend doing a ski bottom. It will not last..
