    Default Walmart Plastic Spray paint for under hood parts.

    In case anyone wanted to paint some of they pieces under the hood a great product to use is the $3 plastic spray paint from Wal-Mart. I painted about 12 pieces on my old truck and they came out great. They're was a beautiful shine and the paint never started to peel at all after over a year on my truck. There's no sanding or priming just about 2-coats of paint. Make sure you prep it by washing it with some some and water and hitting it with a degreaser tho. I found a picture of a couple of pieces and put it in my album under the bedliner tab.

    I tried alot of products and found this cheap paint to work the best. I practiced on junkyard parts with $10 cans of paint and primer and clears and just loved the wal-mart stuff. Well hope this helps a little.

    Thanks for the heads up. I suspect the paint at Wal*Mart is a little fresher than the dust covered cans at my local auto parts stores.
    Are we having fun, yet?
