    confused Painting sills and rear valance??? Advice Please

    Heya everyone,


    Ive just got around to replacing my front bumper with an SRi on and ill obviously need it sprayed. i figured id get my side sills and rear valance done at the same time. is this possible or will the texture show through on the sills? the valance im not that worried about.


    would they paint okay? or would it just be better to get some scratched up allready painted ones off eBay and get them sprayed?



    also should i get my mudflaps done the same colour as the car whill im getting painting done or do they look stupid?


    Ta Guys, Will

    are they brand new item or are they the 1s already fitted to the car, either way they will both probably need priming then painting and laquering to make them the same colour as the car. ive just got all my vxr stuff and they all need painting

    Brand new bumper and the sills and valance are on the car. im going to get a body shop to do the spraying. i was just wondering about the finish you get from most body shops on plastic parts? or is it just a case of you pay for what you get?

    i have also got the side sills done and they look just like and other panal, as long as they primer then paint then laquour you should be fine, get mudflaps done also as they would look good colour coded.

    I took the side ones off and painted and done front and rear whilst still on the car. It is not 100% smooth finish like the bumpers but the colour match was spot on.
    Use a "Filling" primer, then paint then laquer if you do them yourself and tbh it will save you quite a few quid
