    Default Painting parts a different colour.

    As some of you may know I have bought a set of Irmy Quads . With it I've also got the Irmscher exhaust insert, but its painted black. Now as you can see I have the ultra rare Star Silver , can I just flat back and put silver straight over or do I have to prime (white) then put the silver over?

    This Zorst should kick me into action, I cant go round with a set of Irmy Quads on and not much else. Hopefully I'll catch the bug again.

    If you have problems with old and new paints reacting, you'll need to use this.
