    Default Question about colour coding

    Going to get the Irmscher copy front splitter for my pre-facelift signum and spray it.

    I currently have the black plastic/rubbery type side skirts and rear lip. What I wanted to know is, is it worth my while to get the rear lip & side skirts colour coded at the same time? Or would it be cheaper to buy colour coded ones? (Is it actually possible to colour code them without it looking sh*t?)

    Also, what would I expect to pay for a decent job?

    Cheers guys

    It would be well worth while getting the rear lip & side skirts colour coded! (was one of my first Mods)Would look much better and would definatly save you cash over buying new colour coded parts. Getting the ones you have on your car painted will look just as good as the one you can buy pre-painted.

    Not sure what a sprayer would charge as I do all my own painting but I bet it will be cheeper than buying them painted from the steelers.

    Pics would be great to see if you can find them

    Do you know if a bodyshop would sand them first or just paint them as they were? Wanting the best finish as possible

    2 before and 2 after not the greatest of pics but should give you the idea what it looks like ...Garage would probably charge more to make them smooth as its more labor obviously. i did these myself with spray cans if your at all apt try it your self ...Q what colors your car ?

    You could also buy the facelift rear skirt which comes primed for colour coding. I added it to my pre-face....
