Description: If I were to do this again, I would have done the major body area first and then the stripes, but I just couldn't stand looking at those horrible green things any longer and I wanted to see how my new Toreadore Red and Emerald Green stripes would look.
To prep the surface of the entire rig, I washed it thoroughly and light sanded the entire body, by hand, with 500 grit emery, then washed it again. I used NO primer whatsoever, just regular Rustoleum white for the main body and canned spray enamel for the stripes. I would recommend using primer under the stripes if you don't use Rustoleum for them as well. I used a paint brush to go around the trim and a roller to do the main areas.
It took a little less than 4 days, working on it from sun-up to sun-down to complete. Five years later, the paint is in perfect shape.

Yes, I used a roller. Just a very little bit of thinner will help give a smoother finish. Still, you can't tell the difference from just 5' away.
