    Right sorry I having problems with the Sprayer in my Area

    Fog Lights to be done is now 40 pound each thats total 80 pounds ( he said he Had to Rub it allllll down and everything that includes paint and labour and all

    Now I wanted my Rocker Cover in White he said It is a hard job due to its where Oil is and Needs it removed then all Cleaned up and Easier to Buy a new one which I dont understand...

    And the Tailbook strip we having problems he thinks that it will be as hard as the Fog lamps and Dont wanna start it due to the fact he thinks that it Will Flake off the Paint

    Any tips or Ideas thanks

      It would be easier to buy a new rocker cover TBH.
      I have a difference of opinion to you.

            His concerns sounds fair enough to me... there is a potential for flaking.

            At least he's warning you and not just taking your money?

              You always have to rub down to provide a "key" for the fresh paint. Standard stuff....

                    A good degrease and prep, and must ensure that you get all parts of the surface otherwise you'll be left with a patchy looking cover - which if you've prepped yourself the painter will no doubt inform you that they accept no liability should that happen, unless they've done the prep.

                      Just paint it with a roller and some emulsion. Will look proper w1cKed.

                          Best ask him mate, I know he normally spends a few hours on each. From what I remember alex_c had a deal where it was around £120 for the cover fully prepped and painted (by a paintshop, with laquer) and all you needed to do was swap them over and send him your old one back - job done.
