    Default Spraying and fitting a boot lip...

    Hi guys,

    I picked up a rear boot lip a little while ago and I'm looking to spray it and fit it. I know a professional job would look better but I simply dont have the money for that so I'm looking to use rattle cans. I've heard from others that you CAN get a good result from these and seeing as its a smallish area, seems like the way to go.

    One thing though, I'd like a little advise on how to do it.

    I know there's a lot of sanding and spraying but thats about it!

    Also with what should I adhere it with?

    Thanks in advance!

    Search the forum for spraying tips mate Jezzy put and in depth post up few years ago on good spraying techniques. Key is good prep and take your time
    With regard to fixing you can either bolt through boot or use tiger seal. I used the lata and hasn't budged a bit.

    Tiger seal it is. It felt horrible drilling holes for my amp mount, there's no way im putting some of the outside!

    Thanks! Why I couldn't find that I dunno!

    Probably a stupid question but should I completely paint it or just the bits we can see (ie the top)?

    I did mine in Start Silver 3 with rattle cans pretty good job tbh. I used old spray cans to lift it up while spraying it to get to all the edges and corners.
