    ultra blue needs grey primer

    From my experience ultra blue is also a pain in a butt to colour match

    I did the same as plasma, excact colour match. All i will say is after lacquering, leave for a good couple of days before fitting, they are a snug fit and even tho the lacquer is touch dry it will of not hardened enough for the pressure of your thumb pushing them in.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    wouldnt you need plastic flexi primer to allow for expansion of plastic in hot/cold weather????though being small normal primer will prob do
