How To - Paint your Pauldron Black (Or any other Color)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone its me again. I posted this on the Spec Ops Board, but thought it could be usefull here. I know that many TKs don not wear Pauldron's but if you do, or wanted a differnt color

from the on you have try this.


Things you will need


1. 1 Pleather / Vinyl Pauldron

2. Painters Tape

3. Old News Paper or Paper Towels

4. Dupli Color Vinyl and Fabric Spray Paint - Gloss Black

5. Black Elmer’s Painters Pen


Step 1.

So you have a Pauldron that is the wrong color and need to change it up.

For a TX you will need to have it black. I was fortunate enough to get a free

pauldron with my AM order. It was grey and would not go with my black TX, but it was




So first thing to do is to mask of all the parts you do not want painted.

Using your painters tape and news papers/paper towels mask it off like so.



Step 2.

Now that it’s all taped off, we can’t start to paint. Finding an open area and using Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric Paint

(note use this type of paint as it’s meant for this type of material and should not crack like normal spray paints will do.)



I used Gloss Black, but you can use whatever color you want, but make sure it’s for Vinyl and Fabric.



Lets start with a our first Coat. Don’t go to crazy just a quick spray. (note I wiped the pauldron down before painting)


A few minutes later the next coat. (Don’t forget to get under the leather tabs with rivets), then a 3rd coat.

and Finally the 4th coat and set to dry



Step 3.

Now that it’s all dried we can remove the tape and paper off and check it out.




First thing that I noticed that even after taping that there was some grey showing through the edges like so.



So get out your Elmer’s Paint Pen and run it down the entire seems. Press down hard so the paint

can seep into the crevasses of the stitching like so. Repeat to both sides if needed.



Step 4 - You’re all done - Let it dry for a day. This paint is pretty strong so let it air out if you can.







Here it is on my TX Armor. Enjoy!

I think it would like awesome if you paint the whole thing white for are TK's


I agree on that. Thought it would work form some white TKs.


Awesome, thanks for sharing!

Just in case you need another for next Month or any other. :P

Nice job.


I've used that on my car before when I went from a green interior to a black interior. Looks and works great.

Yeah Tray thats how I learned about it. Changed the color on the Dash of my Mitsu EVO 8. Then I was looking at the pauldron wishiing it was black and then realized, this is the same stuff (the Spary Paint) to paint the seats on cars, it has to work on this and it turned out ok..



Thanks again everyone. Just trying to give back to a group that has given so much to me.
