    Lower airdamn sprayed

    Hi peeps finally got round to spraying my lower airdamn matt black, to match the i-line grill, so Ive done some piccies, enjoy, and let me know what you think.

    cheers

    1st up I masked up the front bumper, took me about 45 mins, because of the annoying little gaps



    Next, I used wet and dry paper, and gentally sanded the paint, to get a key for the matt black to stick to



    Next, I applied the first coat, spraying very finely to build up the paint



    Then I waited 10 mins for the paint to dry, word of warning, dont inhale the spray or you may go bogeyed



    After 4 coats I had finished



    Then off with the masking tape and newspaper to see the results

    before......



    After
