Default Has anyone painted their mini? - 07-26-2011, 01:16 AM

I'm talking a full body paint job(minus the touchpad ofcourse).

I was thinking of painting it all white or black. Does anyone have any ideas on which spray paint would work? Krylon perhaps?

Heck maybe I'll use that spray on truck bed liner, that would be neat.

I've seen threads before where people have done that. Try a search.

Regardless of what paint you use, make sure to give it a good prep and have a clean surface. bedliner would be really cool. Whatever you do, post some pics.

why dont you use that spray on undercoating used on cars/trucks...its kinda rubbery and will make the Mini a little harder to drop than the smooth/slippery original finish
