I decided to make a instructables for my cordless drill paint job.
I have an old cordless drill from Bosch but the batteries weren't what they used to be...
So I decided to buy new ones, and because I wanted to know which were the new one and which the old batteries are, I came on the idea to paint the new ones in a nice color :) .
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Taping
First I covered al the parts that I didn't wanted to paint, like the electrical points, the name blade, the technical information ect.
Step 2: Sanding
Then I sanded the areas that I wanted to paint lightly with a 120 grid, both the batteries and the charger.
Be careful with the ventilation slots of the batterie charger, tape them very careful off.
Step 3: Painting
Then I painted the batteries and the charger with a coat of red spray paint.
I was afraid if the tone of the red color would match with the red from the logo from Bosch but the end result was amazing in my opinion.
Step 4: Drying
After the painting I let it dry for a couple of hours and then I went over it with a high grid sanding paper and gave it another coat of paint and let it dry again.
Step 5: Final Result
I was very happy with the final result and after all it didn't took that long.
I hope I could give a little inspiration to other people ;)
