    The brown is a Brushed Metallic, with a satin finish, outside is black gloss. All done with Krylon spray cans. 2 coats of primer, wet sand with 800 grt in between coats lightly. 3 coats of paint, 1000 grt wet sand between coats. final wet sand 2000 grt, rubbing compound. Wash off with water, Add Meguiar's Polish compound,buff.Add Meguiar's swirl-x,buff.Add meguiar's deep crystal carnauba wax,polish her up...I didnt think that satin paint would shine like that. But im gonna go with it..
