Hi Rob,

Have you got the details of the stuff you used (primer and paint) and how much it cost? I need to do both of mine ASAP because they look shocking. Apparently it doesn't justify doing a guide for as its that easy but I do need a bit of help getting the right kit!

Cheers

Dom

i`d say use at least three coats of red oxide primer then either satin black so it matches the black trim or the color of spray to match your car, and why doesnt it justify doing a guide?
think about, we might end up with some people havin no idea how to do stuff, ie respraying, so please explain why i shouldn`t do one...

Last time I asked if the guide for this had been sorted I got a load of posts saying, "you don't need a guide", "sand down, prime, paint, easy" etc. Thats why I thought it wasn't being put up as a guide.

I'm definately one of those who finds it difficult to do the simplest things, especially car related, so a guide would be great please!

Cheers

A full guide wouldn't be required when you are told directly in a post what to do. The guide will be handy for passing visitors.
The guide will basically tell you to sand it down to the bare metal and use a couple of coats of a good metal primer and some suitable paint of your choice.
I will never knock a guide back for the site :)

Yo Rob,

How's this guide coming along, after an inspection I want to spray my foglight surrounds - very similar to mirror base plates.

Hopefully a job for before Brooklands but time is drawing ever closer lol
