    seeing as its the spoiler u wanna paint then the dinky little 150ml cans from Vx are gonna be useless. (Yes these are the biggest sized rattle cans the stealers sell ... and at approx £9 they are excessive)

    If u cant find a decent stockist then Id highly recommend www.paints4u.com - Ive bought all my supplies from these guys lately and the colour match is spot on. A 400ml can costs £10.99 but Id try and get as much as possible to make the most of the P+P costs.
    Plastic filler primer (if reqd), Plastic primer, base & clear etc... You may also wish to get ur W&D as their prices are quite good too.

    sorry to change the topic but does anyone know whether the spoiler on the mk5 can be removed? my tail gate needs repainting as it got scratched to metal at several places while the window specialist removed the broken rear glass...the panel beaters told me they would mask the spoiler and paint as they dont want to heat up the glue to remove the spoiler as the plastic might get deformed...is this the best way to do it?

    i noticed there is a gap between the spoiler and the body..therefore im assuming masking wont be a problem. what do u guys think? have any of uhad their tail gate repainted? if so, did u have to remove your spoiler (if u have one one)?

    thanks!
