    painted my rxpx storage lid today

    I was kinda board today plus I didnt really care for the stock orange color that much so I decided to paint my lid black. I wanted to keep the rxpx sticker to break up the black a bit so we taped over the sticker and shot the black base coat. Before we sprayed the clear I took the tape off the sticker and cleared over everything. It turned out pretty good. I was a little worried the clear was going to lift the decal but it didnt seem to mind.

    Looks nice! Do you plan to do the grab handle also? I'd be interested in what paint you use if you do. I did my knee pads with black paint for vinyl but it's already flaking. Anybody know for sure what year RXP had the factory black pads?

    I think we are going to paint it. My dad has a body shop and knows about all the paint codes and names and everything. We used PPG basecoat and clear on the lid. I am thinking about doing the grab handle next. I think my dad said you have to spray some sort of adhesion promoter on it befor it can be painted. I might buy one on ebay to try it out on.
