We don’t know what paint was used on the top, but it doesn’t appear to be any special paint or process specific to the material being painted. In other words, it looks like the same paint the dealer would use on a car body.

I want to paint my top, but Linex is the way I intend to go. They have a fantastic history on Jeep tops; and provide phenomenal protection against scrapes and scratches.

Thanks for posting.. that finished product looks great! Not sure if a painted top will look good on all color Broncos, but this one works perfectly!

If you didn’t know this started as a textured MIC top you’d never guess it. Whatever they did created a smooth surface that I’d believe was the factory painted top if I weren’t a nutbar that lives on this forum who knows they don’t exist yet. Great work! No clue how it will hold up but today it was stunning.

Looks awesome... but as Beavis and Butthead wisely stated... you can’t polish a turd.

Looks like they painted the front top sections, too:

Shawn C: “Just went on a test drive with Tom Detwiler, pics do not do this thing justice at all. This thing is an absolute beast! Parked next to the 4Runner, 4Runner has 6” lift and 35” tires. Makes me even more impatient for my FE to get here.”

“ Top was painted by the dealer, Dave Sinclair Ford, they are putting a package together for customers to purchase this as an option with them.”

Lol, I actually went to see this vehicle today! It looked really great in person, especially with 37’s on it. Looking forward to September when the my22 order banks open.

Keep us updated on how it holds up long term please.
Noticed in your signature that you got a build date! Congrats! I haven't heard anything since they pushed me back to 8/9.
