Well here are the accomplishments of Erv and I today. After a can of Self Etching Primer, Two cans of Duplicolor Dark Shadow Grey and Two and a half cans of clear here is the result. Hopefully pics of it all mounted will come tommorrow. I am very impressed with how it came out.

Primer



Solenoid cover done. This is the only peice that I may repaint, it was the test peice, doesnt look bad but could stand to be redone.


Roller Drum coated in leftover POR15 that Evan had.


Everything sprayed with paint.





All components cleared. If I remember there is about 6+ coats of paint and 6+ coats of clear on everything but the motor. The motor got 10 coats or more of clear and numerous coats of paint. The cooling fins were a pain to cover. fairlead not pictured.



And Dinner haha.

The winch is back together and on the winch mount. Just need to tighten up the bolts and wire it up.
