LOTS of prep work.

That's pretty much the key.

It's pretty easy, actually.

I primerd the snot out of everything I wanted to pain. 3-4 coats and then just started sanding. Started out at 600 I think and went to 1600? until everything was nice and smooth.

Waited for a day with the less humidity and about 75 degrees and started painting. It's just AutoZone car spray paint.

The trick is to put on over lapping coats while getting it wet without runs. If you're too far away from what your painting the paint will haze up. I stayed about 6" away and moved at a decent rate and really laid the paint without getting any runs.
