Added khaki and black. May add some grey and/or lighter brown. After adding the black I noticed it is satin and not flat. It is no more shiny than the factory finish but is noticeable. May need to drag it around behind the lawn mower while cutting the grass. I did no masking on this one. Just sprayed with non chlorinated brake cleaner then started painting. I have about 20 minutes total in the whole process.

Yep, I had to strip a lower. Orange ? something worked good. Had to use a toothpick to get all the cracks. Bride's gonna paint my lightweight someday. Not my deal either.
Why would you paint a lightweight build?
Weigh the can of paint before you paint it. Don't add too many ounces.
