Tailgate Painting

We painted the tailgate separately from the truck and masked it off to give it an old-school three-tone paint job. We first painted the white, then let it dry for a couple hours, masked it off, wiped it down with alcohol wipes, and laid down the blue. After the blue flashed (went from wet-looking to dry-looking), we pulled the three-tone masking off and clearcoated the whole thing.
