[DML] Painting parts [was: Steering Column Surround]



Actually, I was considering doing just that -- but for the wipers. A friend
who restored an old Datsun Z28 sanded the paint off of those wipers, then
primed them and sprayed them with a few coats of flat black Krylon. They
looked great, but I would prefer shiny to flat. :-)

What kind of paint did you use?
