It actually took very little time to prep it for painting. I had to pull off the rubber step pads because they were pretty crispy. I cleaned up the rest of this little jewel and primed it, then began spray painting. I used a peacock blue by Valspar. I love the roughed up look, so I started sanding and got a wonderful surprise! Some of the yellow started to show through :)
Here is the final product...
This one is a keeper!
