    well the real question is are you prepared to do ALL the required prep work???

    have you ever painted anything before? if you haven't you can get a decent job out of a rattle can just prep correctly and take your time most of all.

    the biggest tip i could give if it's your first time is work slowly piece by piece and don't try to get full coverage on the first coat....


    on a side note do you own a decent 30+ gallon compressor?

    well it is my understanding that too many mills of paint equal bad paint job, so if you mean scuffed and painted naw i wouldn't do that if i were after a good looking paint job. i'd take it down to factory prime and go from there. just my .02 though
