see but im looking for the tool box to look similar to my rims i just want to a black. idk if i should go with gloss or semi gloss black.

i guess i should clarify a little im just wondering what i should do in terms of prep paint and then like a top coat?

thanks tho jeff i was actually thinking about buy a can of like that 3m rubberized undercoat spray stuff and doing the inside of the box with that maybe make it quieter if i have loose tools in there

thanks

Lots of thin coats w/progressively finer sanding between always worked for me.
By thin I mean 4 coats or so before you start to get full coverage.

drove to a shop and dished out cash ha hows that
Are you for real? I just hope that they scuffed the surface first, then use a self-etching primer and then sprayed it down with some color and maybe a clear coat or two to finish.

I saw a couple of boxes here in Florida where the proper procedure was not followed and it all started to flake off.
