Painting a clear shell?

Like it says. I've got a clear shell on my V35, and want a black shell. More accurately, I want one that's black on the front, and has a clear top and lid. Question; Should I paint the inside of the shell, or the outside?

Maybe someone will be able to give you advice off of their experience. I haven't done it, but I would think you would want to do the inside, because it would make it look better on the outside. But that implies that the parts on the inside may get over spray (critical moving parts) (of course you would disassemble before hand). But thats me.

Yes you paint the inside of the shell and then clear coat it real good.

I would recommend lightly sanding the inside so that the paint will stick and talk to your local dhardware store about priming it with something that works well for plastic so that it wouldn't start to chip away after regular use. Good Luck!

Painting the inside is the best idea, but make sure you do a generous clear coat and allow it to try completely or you will have serious issues.

Also, depending on how much paint you use it could make the loader noticeably heavier.

As long as you sand (just a little bit) and use Krylon Fusion or any other type of paint designed for plastics you should be fine.

paint the inside to prevent anything from hitting it and increasing the chance of chipping.

Also you may want to lightly sand the parts you will be painting, i would reccomend using Krylon Fusion paint, it works great for plastics.

Make sure you apply a few layers of clear coat too.

Apply multiple layers of paint, then clear coat. Another option would be to dye it Smoke
