    Default Painting rear lower spoiler etc

    My veccy is the sxi, in diamond black but the rear lower spoiler, lower sill side panels and the front spoilers are just a matt plastic finish. is it possible to respray them to a luvly shiney black to match the rest of the paintwork? i`ve bought some 17s kei force 10s in silver + its gonna be lowered 35mm { when the damn snows gone} and i`m kinda thinking it would look better with the skirts a nice shiny black to match, oh and do the side skirts come off easily, Its true what they say on here, once you start to read the threads of what other guys are doing you get drawn in as well, credit crunch my ar**

    But what are the right materials?, Bearing in mind the car is metalic black, I am also gonna repaint the front bumper coz its a mess with stone chips and it lets the rest of the bodywork down

    Skirts and lower spoiler come off real easy, Skirts have a plug with a pin that goes through the middle of the plug, all you need to do is push pin right through and the plug will come out ( try and keep the pins as you will need them when you put them back on ) but they are cheap to buy, i painted my sills and rear skirt before changing them for Irmscher ones, couple of pice before and after here, any more info you need just shout

    Mmm very very nice, colour coded they look 1st class, It`s a must do mod I think for any veccy, oh well its a trip to the motor factors to get the required stuff, we go away for a few weeks shortly and we are back 1st week in April, only got 4 days back at work then its a 4 day break for Easter, hope its gonna be good weather coz I hope to lower the height x35mm put on the new alloys paint the sills etc and do a clay job and polish, ****** `ell I`m knackered thinking about whats to do in 4 days, good job I`ve got the home brew at the ready
