    Smile Painting LS plastic sideskirts

    Hi folks, this may already have been asked but just out of curiosity what would be involved in repainting the plastic sideskirts on my 53 plate Vectra. Just bought a set of colour coded door handles cheap and fancy finishing off the look with the sideskirts - any advice?

    Its lightening silver too, if that makes any difference!


    Thanks all

    You can Prob pick up some painted sri ones for £40/£50, prob worth waiting and travel, it'll be near that price for materials...

    ebay item: 370756018528

    £50 posted and that's just a quick look, check out any breaking z163 or 4au in description search...

    Painting wise its sanding and high build primer, may end up with flatter spots trying to get rid of the dimples, so may get a wave effect in the paint along the full skirt, paint and lacquer then labour if your not doing it... Not worth the effort and might get a few quid for yours
