repainting tuffy console

Just picked up a tuffy console in gray and want to paint it black. My thought is to degrease, wet sand with 600 grit, prime and paint -- any reason that wouldn't work on powdercoat?

thanks

Tony

The arm rest is just attached to mine by screws through the lid...

Unless you mean how to change the color of the arm rest? There is vinyl paint which works well, but I'd just have an upholstery guy whip up a new one.

Use an etching primer, then paint. Powder coat can be painted - had some rock sliders on my 110 I painted white to match the vehicle - worked fine.

I'll see how obnoxious the gray cover is over the black, if it's bad I'll recover it or paint it.

thanks for the input, I'll report back on results.
