    hey there all,
    i've decided that i really want to change the tan/brown color of my rig, i'm about set on a dark forrest green color, the cap will be flat black. i have a friend that paints at a body shop and has his own set up, he said that if i do all the prep work he'll spray it for the cost of the paint and a case of brew!
    my rig has almost no rust on it, maybe a few scratches and dings. what kind of prep work am i looking at? what will i need to use? i'm not looking to make it cherry because this is a trail rig, just something that will last and look decent.

    I could make suggestions, but I would consult your friend and see what he likes to do. He should be able to tell you exactly the way he likes it done and then it would probably be a hell of a lot better then what I could tell you since I just rattle can my Jimmy.
