Rattle can, fancy it up!
The Miata that bought looks like trash, it literally looks like it came out of the dumpster! Well, after watching a MCM video on how to spray your car at home, I decided to do the ghetto version of it. The Miata paint is simple and black. I decided to buy the cheapest spray paint I could and see if I can make it look good.
Paint in total cost me about six dollars and I had some fine grit sand paper at home.
First I washed the headlight housing, then I sanded it down. After sanding I wiped everything clean and placed the housing on something to keep it off the ground. The spray paint handle is only a few dollars at a hardware store and really helps put down the paint evenly.
After the first two layers of primer it was starting to look pretty good.
I started to applied the color after that.
After the two coats of color I started to apply the clear coat. Yay, it’s getting shiny!
You can totally see the lines from when I applied the spray paint, but for about six dollars I don’t think it’s too bad. I’m going to try to do my hood next! Wish me luck!
