hi all. ive just bought my astra, its metallic black and im wanting to colour code the side skirts and door strips. from reading all the other posts i kind of understand how to do it but i need confirmation from the pros lol
bearing in mind to take my time and allowe 10-15 mins between each layer. i remember tryin to ting my rear lights on my corsa b, i kept applying the blak paint wanting to go darker and darker and then when i applied the laquer it made the whole thing go like treacle and it just scraped off.
- wash all the plastic
- smooth down using sand paper.
- apply a few layers of a plastic primer.
- apply a few layers of high build primer. (whats the difference between the two primers?)
- apply the paint colour.
- apply the laquer.
