Hi, I am looking to respray my front and rear bumper on the Cinq. Using primer, paint from halfrauds and laquer. Just wondering if anyone could take me through how to prep the bumpers and any little tricks i can use to get a better finish.

Cheers

the best trick is to get an air compressor and do it properly. using halfrauds paint is ok up untill the lacquer. the halfrauds lacquer is thin and crap and ull never get it looking good. trust me, plenty of experience with the rubbish.

hiya mate

when i did mine not so long back i used spray paint and lacquer from a can

i stripped the bumper down and made sure it was well primed and waited for the primer to dry then spray the paint on in thin layers once you have done that wait fo it to dry and then apply the lacquer same again think layers and just build it up

did that with mine and this what it looked like
