    Default Primer help

    Stupid question I know but I have an irmy front spoiler & im not sure if it has primer on it, as I have never seen anything with primer on it. Its white in colour & when I rub my hand on it, its a bit dusty. Would you guys say it has primer on it?

    I believe they leave the factory with primer. Use a cloth with white spirit or similar to get rid of the dust before painting.

    if it's a break you could try superglue.. if it's a pit or scrape then it'll need a litle filler or stopper..

    get yourself down to helfrauds and get some easy sanding car body filler.. you can even buy it ready mixed in a tube..no more than £5...

    sand it back to a fine 600 grit paper and re-prime the area.. you'll be able to get some plastic primer there as well..

    the paint code is found on the drivers door pillar, on the black chassis plate..

    it will be the two lower codes, one for paint and one for the body trim..



    VX paint will be dearer than helfrauds but will be a better match IMO..
