      No, you are just painting a plastic trim - has no affect on any parts on the car.

          Thanks for that

          Sorry about the title, I was only joking about the warranty, I just wanted to show off, I uploaded these photo's all on my own and it only took twenty minutes

          I just need to highlight the turbo badge now

                I did it myself, I usually paint the rocker cover on my cars, I whipped the cover off my mk1 VXR and painted it as soon as I got it home, and six years later it still looked as good as when I first did it

                I just use Plastikote primer and super gloss red rattle cans rub down the surface with wet and dry, mask up, degrease, prime and 4 top coats. It looks a bit orange under the garage lights but in daylight its a very bright red, it makes lifting the bonnet a bit more of an event

                    Just dont take the cover off now as that will crack all the paint when the plastic moves unter the pressure.
                    looks great tho.

                      It will void it if the paint melts under heat drips onto something hotter and sets on fire, that might void the warranty

                        That looks a cracking job! It's also good to see someone doing the job PROPERLY! It's amazing how many people do a painting job without the primer coat. 4 top coats also good. Well done mate.
