Default lets see those custom painted subs

I got a wild hair in my a%% today to try and see how painting my 2 L7 12's would come out today. My truck is white so I decided to paint them white to match. My box will have black carpet so the contrast should come out pretty good. After masking them off, i put 3 coats of base followed by 3 coats of clear. No sanding or anything so they arent absolutely perfect but I think they came out good. Here is a few pics (sorry for the quality pics, its off my phone):

how they started (this is a pic of my L7 8 but same basket)


one coat of base:


finished:

So who else has their painted? Even boxes would be cool to see that were painted. I thought of this after looking at someones box on here that was painted by kids, looked neat. Also if this is in the wrong forum I apologize.

That looks pretty sweet actually, looks better than the original IMO. Nice job.

Lol no not the cones, just the baskets. Thanks for the compliments. It didnt take too long to do at all. Maybe 3 hours all together on both, start to finish with about an hour of dry time on both

If I had a black vehicle murdered out I would have definitely did these the same way you did yours. All black looks killer IMO.
