    Yeah, I thoroughly flatted them down with 500 grit, then used Tetrosyl plastic primer, 3 coats, flatted with 1000 grit, then 5 coats Tetrosyl candy apple red, flatting again with 1000 grit. Then, 2 coats of Tetrosyl FX effect Gold flake, (dont flat the flake) and finally 3 coats of Simonize acryllic clear laquer, that`s it
