    Does anyone have any ideas on how I could paint the metal panels. I was thinking King plastidip but I really don't know what will hold up. Maybe rustoleum

    Could I get your guys opinion on paint for the body. I was thinking painting the cage either a gloss black or gloss white and then doing the panels either red, black or white. What combo do you think I should do?

    Black cage with red panels would get my vote.

    Looks good. For paint it is metal . so enamel primer then enamel paint. Maybe even do some clear coat over the color. For that extra gloss look. Or spray plastidip. Will give a Matt finish. And can be peeled off to change the color. You can even use plastidip. Over The cured paint job. The plasti dip will be cheaper as u only need the one can.

    I ended up using the Valparaiso paint and it seemed to work very well. The true test will be when I get out on the dirt.

    Darn auto correct always screws everything up. What I meant to say was that I also have my mud guard but I need to get some longer screws in order to mount it.
