    halfords paint is good enough. scrub them with a wire brush and wash them. Then about three coats of paint, really easy job, can do them while still on the car. What colour is your car?

    you can get away with any colour then. The usual being red, blue or yellow. Culd be different and go for white, gold or green, all personal choice.
