    Default VX Spray Cans - Suitable?

    Looking to buy a primed V Grill and paint sapphire black.

    Would spray cans do the job or would I be better off getting done locally?

    Only ever sprayed wheel arch on cav many moons ago.

    For something that size i'd use them. Depends how confident you are though.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
