doesnt matter what color primer, number of coats of base is whats important, krylon plasticoat is alright and doesn't chip as easy as cheaper stuff, thats the best your gonna do with out glassing and bodyfilling, and then using automotive paint.

especially on cut edges, make sure to coat them as many times as possible, i hate how sometimes it'll look fine, then end up looking the same color just faded

*takes deep breathe*
Sand it with 200 grit for a while, then take some resin with some thinner to thin it out and put a coat on the cut edges. Then hit everything again with 200. Then sand everything again with 400. Hit it with primer, sand with 400, hit it with another coat of primer sand with 400.
Then spray a couple good coats of color. Let dry for a good day..Spray a clear...Beware spraying clear before the paint dries...

How about using spray on truck bed liner. I have used that and made some sweet looking boxes.

How would you get that black glossy wood look that you see on home speakers? Is it just MDF with a woodgrain layer overtop, then painted with a tint, then clear coated? I was going to fibreglass then paint black, and still might, but I have always liked the looks of woodgrain on everything and anything. Plus it will match my Bedliner.
