They did look good when they were wet as well. This pic is tempting me to go get some gloss black and do the fronts again. But I think I would rather have them flat black for my winter set.

Your probably better off taking them to your local powdercoater. Have the dipped in stripper and powdercoated.

I would charge $150-$200 to clean, sand and paint a set like these ones. Plus you would have $200+ in shipping.

Thanks for that super rapid iTrader feedback too, by the way.

Every time I used to see the index card trick I'm floored. It just... works. Then I saw some OG body shop tricks and now I'm a bit jaded :P

Thanks guys and I'll get some better pics up later. I'm really pleased with how they turned out. When I first opened the box I was like why did I buy these! But it was well worth it!
