    Default My Summit White GTC VXR Astra

    Today I sprayed the exhaust tips in black, because I couldn't be bothered cleaning them every 500 yards. I took inspiration from Bailsey and a couple of others from the forum. However I did it the lazy way, using masking tape to just get the visible part of the exhaust tips rather than removing the rear diffuser and rear bumper.

    Here's a before pic, you're probably all used to seeing this;



    I used some general metal cleaner from Halfords, set me back about £6 or so. Will come in handy again I'm sure



    I used masking tape to cover the parts I didn't want paint on (added more after I took the below pic)



    I used this heat resistant paint, we use it at work when maintaining our generators etc



    Applying



    The finished product;



    Let me know what you think lads.
    Probably going to do another coat next week as its a little uneven in places but overall pretty happy with it

    Thanks for looking,

    Thanks bud. Yeah, yet to fit also. Cars going in the garage on Monday and although they won't be lifting the bonnet it's not worth taking the risk as far as warranty goes.

    Cheers

    Latest picture. Ordered some wind deflectors so they will be added. Attending northwest car cruise winter meet on Sunday, hopefully have them for then.

    thanks for looking,

    James.
