I have a few scratches on my lip and i decided to repaint it. What kind of paint should I use? and would be a good idea to use a clear coat afterward? (to make it shiny)
shockel said:i used plasti-kote semi-gloss black #1895 bumper spray. It looked excellent coming from a can.
Also used it on the interior piece around the auto shifter and it matched extremely close to the other pieces (has to be prepared properly). Got it at pep-boys auto stores, if you are going to use it i recomend that you get the handle for the can "can gun" to lay it out more even. spray light coats only until desired texture. Don't spray heavy coats cause they tend to run. good luck.
dblegle said:1.Clean part with wax and grease remover.
2. Wipe off with alcohol / plastic prep.
3. Spray "adhesion promoter" on the part.
4. Spray paint after required flash time for adhesion promoter.
5. Either clear over or leave depending on how you want to finish.
blkturbo! said:Someone asked about Krylon's "Fusion" spray paint. Shit, I say, if it works half as good as the commercial says it does, then more power to ya....I plan to use it eventually....I cant wait to see how strong it is!
dblegle said:I took the stock mud flaps off the front and painted them with the "Fusion" paint. I didn't even wipe them down. Just washed with soap and water and painted. You can literally fold the part in half and the paint stays on the part! Too bad it doesn't come in more colors...
