After bead blasting I spray on several good, heavy coats of a high fill primer. Sand between coats then go with your base color coat. Again, lay on several heavy coats. I hand lettered mine with a good quality artist brush and One Shot, sign painters enamel of the appropriate color. After proper drying time shoot on a few coats of high gloss clear. Take you time and a steady hand. You'll be proud of your results.
