Price was minimal I paint cars just really time consuming these tops are not ready to paint at all but with alot of sanding and priming I achieved a suitable surface to paint

Looks great. I assume you sanded all the texture off of the flares and mirrors too?

Nice job with the top! This is what my 2dr should have looked like from the factory.
Any thoughts on wrapping or painting the black plastic between the doors?

Looks good man. Looks like you put a lot of time and work into it and it finally paid off.

That looks nice! Seen others do similar (flares, mirror) in other colors and it's too much....

Yours is nice. You may need to think about changing your handle or personalized plate like Blue Mule or BLUBYU, etc....

👍👍

It looks fantastic!
Can you give us more details about the procedure?
It looks like you didn't sand the MIC surface flat and used a primer-surfacer to fill the irregularities.
What primer and primer-surfacer did you use?
I do my own work too, but still waiting for my 2 dr BaseSquatch to get built.
I blocked the entire surface with 150grit then primed then 150 blocked and 220 blocked then primed again then blocked with 320 and da with 400 and yes I blocked the most of the surface flat I used ppg 3055 primer
