I've got the tool box painted, now I'm just waiting a bit to do a couple coats of clear. It looks so much better! I'll have pictures up once it's on the truck

Yeah clear coat is definitely important for painting haha. I've learned from painting my bmx bike all the time that good prep and clear coat are essential to paint looking good and lasting.
