    Default painting xp spoiler

    Ok well a big box was delivered today, This is it http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VECTRA-C-HATCH...d=p3286.c0.m14 The question i have is it better to get it painted then fit it , or fit it first then paint it. If i was not as tight as a ....... .... i would have paid the extra and got them to do it, i will be waiting to get it done as i still need the front spoiler , was out bid but sure another will come along.

    You are probably better off asking the person who is going to paint it.

    Paint it off then fit it, you will get a better finish and no unsightly edges where the lacquer has gathered in the joint between spoiler and bumper.

    Vehicle : M5

    Trim : Nothing needs adding

    Engine : 5.0 V10

    Line it up and make any adjustments you need then have it sprayed off the car ( gets into all of those bits you won't get near to when its fitted) then fit it that way you will fit it without marking the new paint if it needs a tweak or two as they often do.

    Fit it to make sure it fits then spary it and then fit it as the guys have said the finish will be a lot better unless you intend on having the whole bumper sprayed....that will look pretty good!
