    Default CC V grill & lightbrows

    Right, weather tomorrow looks good, got day off, Wife @ work and Daughter @ nursery! So wanting to CC my chrome V and CC and fit my lightbrows.
    So what do i need from a trip to Halfords? Thinking 1x can of primer, colour coat and clearcoat should be enough? How many coats of each? Will i have enough drying time in a day, from start to finish? Wet n dry, but what grades?
    Panel wipes? Can you get a ready mixed fine surface filler for any small stonechips? Should i W/D lightbrows before priming to key 'em? Whats the best Halfords product to stick em on with?
    Pheewww ok think thats about it
    Any help & advice welcome as always

    For the Grille - 2 coats of primer over the chrome, W&D, probably need 3-4 coats of colour then 3 coats of lacquer.
    Eybrows - havent done it but imagine just smooth the edges with sandpaper and same as the grille.

    Did my grille over 2 days to ensure lac was hard enough to withstand the stone chips, it has so far.
