want to paint shelter

Post by m2102 »



I've been thinking about painting the shelter where ignition/ meter panel is. It is a grey dingy color and would like to paint it with RUSTOLEUM truck bed textured paint. Besides making sure it is clean and dry is their something else i should do before painting?
The shelter is getting rub marks on it that starting to show the abs color under it. TIA
