  • can i ..

    i have the new xp2 smoothed fog surorunds.. which are matt black plastic..

    am wanting them gloss black, if i sprayed them with a gloss black tin spray would they shine up good and wud it run off with the rain etc??

    or if i took them in to be sprayed properly how can i get them sprayed so that they never stone chip and luk a mess..

    cheers in advance guys

    if you spray can them then make sure you had a feww coats of laquer on after. should be o.k. but for the size and cost just bung them in a body shop.

                  I brought some of these and Paulk sprayed them black for me.

                  Personally i didnt like the look.

                  With self painting they wernt very smooth, the only wau for a smooth finish is either to put some time into them or have a pro do them. Going to be next to impossible to stop chips unless you got some clear 3m film and wrapped them
