Most of the silver paint is finished. I'm going to paint between the two middle rub rails black and repaint the remaining rub rails black too. I'm worried I might get drips of black on the silver, not sure if I should do the rails with a foam rubber brush and the can of paint I bought or use rattle cans and a piece of cardboard to prevent over spray?

Go to Lowe's or Home Depot in the paint section and buy a self adhesive edge barrier. They aren't too pricey and you just put it on like you are taping an edge. Makes it easier if you use spray, and can do it by yourself.

Looks great!

Thanks guys, The silver paint is XO-Rust which was thinner than I expected, for some reason Rustoleum won't ship that color to CT. Anyway I used Rustoleum black and it is much thicker, I actually ended up thinning it a bit which worked fine with brush, roller and some foam brushes. Still have to re-pint more rub rails, but I'm happy with the progress.

I had a really sweet pooch named Shelby a few years back. But she was a tad larger...what with being a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.
