Re: Spraying my trims

Hi there,

have the trims lost their colour (i.e. paint pelling off) or is it a case of them just looking a bit 'dull'?

There's quite a bit of work involved in painting trims (which for best results should be removed from the car beforehand), so it might be best to post a pic or two so we can see if they are salvageable, rather than taking a drastic step...

To paint, you'll need to rub down the plastic, apply primer, basecoat, and lacquer - and that's not including the removal & refitting hassle - its not a job that can be done in half a day.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
