Thks Cali/Ranger Gal Guess what; well i went to Lowes Home Improvement yesterday morning and bought a 125psi air compressor. I then went to HarborFreight and bought a paintgun, hose, and pther accessories. well I have since painting the items to a mirror like finish. my goodness the paint comes out of those so nice and I even used much less paint. Also I was told to use Sems paint on vinyl/rubber but I opted for Preforated Leather Upholstery 3 yards to be on the safe side.

Also i took off the armrest and the upper preforated shoulder part. yea I just drilled out the plastic rivets and took a flathead and pryed them up. when I put it back i used a glue gun on the area and thenput a lot of glue over the area where the glue use to be and it sealed tight as h........ll well you get my drift.

I will be putting up pics soon. combination of Graphite Grey/ White inserts.....

When i painted the arm rest i took off the rubber piece that goes over the arm rest. It will not take paint very well at all. I just need to go back and fill the little hole like things in the rest itself to make it smooth.

SO IT DID NOT TAKE TO PAINT HUH......... so what did you end up doing to it. i wonder if vinyl paint will work better; with a adhesion promotor.
