Finished painting my Astro

After a lot of work removing the stripes and sanding down the paint around the stripes to get it all smooth again the van is now painted.

I still have to paint the running boards and remount them and I have to repaint the window trim and door handles black. I will do that in a few weeks after the paint has dried good and I can buff it out to get a real deep shine. But for now it is painted and looks good.

After putting the primer on there was almost nothing left that needed fixing so it only took a few minutes to fix the flaws and then wet sand the whole thing before putting the paint on.

Edit: Added pictures with the running boards installed.
