What type of paint do you guys use? I am looking for a nice shiny black finish. What is the best paint to use to get that effect. I've seen some pics on here with the paintjob looking like that and I need to know what paint that is. I will post a pic if i can find it.

u can lay down some sanding primer...get that nice and smooth. then grab say...5-6 cans of black lacquer..and if u can find a fat cap it makes things much easier to get an even coat. throw down 1 coat at a time until u have a nice coat that you like

if you want it shinny... sand the box. primer it. sand with fine grit. prime. sand paint. and use good primer... you're finish product is only going to be as good as you're base.
