    Exclamation side skirt painting

    Hi, i went to ask around at a local place to get my side skirts painted but i got told as of the car wash people puttin the grease shine on the skirts after the wash it glues onto them and wen sprayin the skirts it has a bad reaction to it?
    they said they can do it but not promising me a good finish....

    does anyone heard about this or know a way around it?

    yeah mate it because the stuff the car wash prays on is silicone and reacts with the paint although it can still be done you jus hafta give your skirts a good rubbing with thinners although be careful
