Yeah they were on the trailer when I bought it. anyone have any ideas on how to paint them straight would be helpful. I just used a small brush.

Get a detail gun from an autoparts store. use the pinpoint setting, get a peice of cardboard and use it as a straight edge/

What would a detail gun run $$ wise and what paint should i use. I know it would have to be thin. so how do you do that. I'm thinking of redoing the white. it is sloppy looking.

http://www.harborfreight.com/adjusta...gun-92126.html,

I have this one and it works just fine. Search on line for thining of the paint. I personally shot rutolium through it and it did just fine that was unthined however i dont recomend this. you could also got to the local autoparts store and tell them what your trying to do and ask what paint/ thinner you need. Also make sure you sand the area and prime the area first. then sand the primer. otherwise it wont cover Good.

The other option if you dont have a detail gun but a regular spray gun is to cut the templet out of cardboard. so no overspray happens, or tape it out with masking tape.
