    Standard Skirts

    How much work is involved in painting the original black skirts on my 02 ski?
    Also, how much would it cost and is it better ro take it to a bodyshop or do myself?

    Thanks

    you would be better to take them to a body shop think it cost me about £150 that was for the bumper strips and the skirts

    you could do it yourself but depends how good you are at spraying you would need to rub them down with wet and dry paper, then clean them with white sprit or something similar to remove any crap off them then you will need to prime them using a plastic primer followed by a few layers of paint make sure to leave to dry inbetween coats and then smooth down wioth wet and dry again the you will need to finish with laquar(spelling) lot of work if you ask me but i dont have the time to do it i would rather jsut pay a body shop
