    Yeah, I did it myself. I used Plastidip Spray. 6 Coats, with no primer. I just followed the vids from you tube.
    Mainly because if I got it wrong, I would be able to peal it off..

    It's good stuff mind, did the rear strip in it too. Has a Matte finish with a slight texture, but not too noticeable.

    Mines silver and i was having this debate with meself as i dont see much point in spraying it silver so i was going to go for the high gloss black i think imo it would look better but each to there own mate would love to see what you decide to do
