Default Painted my S2T

I finally chose a color and got around to repainting my '96 S2T. It's just rattle-can and by no means perfect, but it came out pretty good IMO and certainly better than the 4 colors it was before. MY wife told me she's finally not embarrassed to ride on it now :P.

Before:



After:









Note: the wide lids were the same color as the narrow lids when I got them, but I don't have before pics with the wide lids on.

Thanks Rico! Yeah I was impressed with the color once I sprayed it. It is a bit more translucent than I expected, but that's ok. Had I known that in the beginning I would have used a black primer instead of white. The color is Inferno Red Metallic, an old Mopar color.

I don't think it would look as good with the black primer.

To clarify, I mean I would have used black primer under the paint, so it came out a little darker and slightly more reflective. Who knows though; I might have hated the outcome in that case .
