    Everything hung-up and ready for priming. Don't worry the sticker was taken off before painting.

    Everything is primed, even the screws.

    A boring update I know but an update none the less


    After drying overnight, I wet sanded at 1000 grit

    Everything was washed, dried with a hair dryer, then rubbed down with rubbing alcohol. Everything was rehung in the garage/paint booth :hehe: and then primed again.


    Everything was then rehung again in the basement to dry overnight

    Everything was wet sanded at 1500 grit, washed, dried, and rubbed with alcohol clean the surface just in case anything was missed in the washing. After everything was hung up in the garage (aka my paint booth) they were painted with Rustoleum flat black auto paint.

    I can't do anything since the dry time is 2 days, so no update tomorrow but the next day there will be.

    Well I wet sanded again today and put another coat of flat black on, I would have pic but they would be the same as above. Right now everything is hung up to dry, final pics should be up within a few days.

    All done

    Since the paint sealed the button some paint had to be removed so it would work, it's a little sloppy but everything is fixed now

    Since black is hard to see in the dark recesses of my desk this will have to do for now
