painting \'glass

I just got a set of fiberglass fenders for my Tacoma, and I'm looking for advice on how to paint them and what to use. Price is definitly an issue here, but I want them to be black like the rest of my truck.

Re: painting \'glass

Most fiberglass comes with some kind of gel coating that you will have to rough out before you paint them.

If price is an issue and you want black, how about a nice coat of Krylon! ?

Otherwise you can take it to just about any auto shop to match paint and gloss.

Re: painting \'glass

so you can just use regular automotive paint on it? I'd heard that it would flake off....?

'Tis possible. Might want to talk with someone a little more experienced about it then myself. I never got the glass painted on mine! [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
