    I painted mine with Halfords rattle cans and they turned out a treat. Just take your time and have a hairdryer or heatgun handy

    Glad your happy with the bits I sold you one thing I would say is take your time with the prepping as Purely Paintwork painted all my kit and the paint was flaking where the extension goes in the rear arches, and I was told this was down to poor prepping and painting etc

    If your car is black as in your picture, I would advise against even trying to spray it. Black is one of the hardest colours to spray because you sort of see straight though it, and colour matching is a ******!

    I can do most colours myself, (small areas I only have a small compressor) but mine is black and if i want something sprayed, i take it to the pros.
