Thanks for the compliments. I know the pic. is less than desirable, but the weather has been about the same for getting a good shot. The color is off just a tad, but you have to look real close to see it.
Here is what I did to paint it. First I sand blasted all the chrome until there was no hint of a shiny spot. Then I primed with Sherwin Williams self etching primer. I let that dry over night and then applied multiple coats of SEM high build primer surfacer. Light sanded with 600 grit and applied the orange. The auto body paint shop mixed me up an aerosol can of the orange that was closest match. I believe that it was an SEM product as well.
