    Rattle Cans

    Hi all,

    Just making sure that i'm not going to need a compressor to spray parts of the motor? I will be spraying the bump strips/ side skirts/ door handles/ rear bumper and hopefully the wheels eventually.. Will rattle cans do the job for all of this?

    If they are, what other sites are useful apart from paints4u.com?

    I will be using the "how to's" but if anyone has any other tips on making it easier that will be appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Nick

    They would, personally i have used cans to spray my wing mirror rears and centre console & would use them for the handles and bump strips too (im leaving them as they are). Where the bumpers are concerned i'm getting it done professionally as it's too much spraying for me on my own with cans.

    But would you spray the front & rear bumpers with rattle cans yourself...?

    Nice one cheers! Don't worry its only a van rear bumper, fronts colour coded (its the sportive), so its probable about the same area as a side skirt!

    Munkie, how much paint did you use for colour coding each of your bits? Colour paint and the laquer..

    Cheers.
