The brake lines look smooth too!
Prep is the hard part! I stripped all the Not-to-be-painted parts off and disassembled the cluster. I sanded each part with 400 grit (to knock down any imperfections) and for paint adheasion. Then I hit it with PPG primer, PPG Jet Black base, and 3 coats of clear. Being this is a small part and to save alot of time and $$ maybe you could use Dupli Color? :2cents: The primer and base go quick from start (tear down) to finish (dry base) about 2.5 hrs. Clear coat, the rest of the day, plus wet sanding in between. I did this over a year ago and it still looks great :thumb:
