Also, I wanted a certain logo, but it would be too hard. So after painting it one solid color, I was considering mounting a vintage tin sign to the outside. Any issues anyone can think of if I do this?
I used regular Rustoleum thinned with 15% acetone and sprayed 2 coats. It has held up perfectly. I used a magnectic Alabama Logo on the front and it has done fine too. I know a few on here have done the vinyl wrap for more elaborate looks. And they seem to work good.
