    Default Parking sensors 2

    Parking sensors arived this morning

    just a few quick pics, of what they look like, just sanded them down and gave them a quick colour spray for a base coat, will sand down later this afternoon and give them another coat, all being well I can clear coat them tomorrow and get them fitted on Sunday

    Tested them first on my battery booster, just to make sure they work before I spray them...............HOW FLAMIN LOUD

    Think I will have to fit the buzzer in someone elses car



    First I cut some holes into a sheet of thick card



    Then I sanded them with some spray grade glass paper and slid them into the card, not all the way down, as I didnt want bad painted edges



    This is the first coat which will be rubbed down to practically nothing as I find the main colour works better as a primer on plastic surfaces

    Yes and no

    there was when I took the pic right after spraying, 5 mins later it had gone

    Just finished the last coat of laquer

    2 coats of colour (1st rubbed down)
    2 coats of laquer

    the colour is way darker than the car, but it could be it needs time to fade in the sunlight

    should be all fitted for tomorrow evening, just need to find a 30mm hole saw then all will be ready to commence

    I was lead to believe you should only give them a very light coat of paint and no laquer as this will impead the sensitivity ?


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
