After a bit of a hiatus of returned to do a minor mod. I still rock the factory sub and box but it needed to be changed. I was going through my toolbox and found a rattle can of DWB paint and figured why the hell not, if it turns out like crap I'll just PlastiDip it.

I started off by light sanding it just to get rid of the high spots from the factory stamps. They're still there but they don't stand out as much which I don't mind as it's just supposed to be a simple quick project to make it look better. After sanding I followed up with a adhesion promoter, primer, and a base coat.



Letting it dry for about 45 minutes I applied to more coats, 45 min dry time between each coat.



And finally after 4 coats of paint and 3 coats of clear following the same dry time method.





I definitely should have done this a lot sooner as I always just figured I would replace it with a fox box, but it's a great medium in the mean time and didn't take long at all.
