Looks good.  I have still to find a system that stops the plastic going grey and makes it easier to clean.  Various folks have tried various tricks.  Painting them is certainly a new one though.  :)

Yes they came out great , but it was all about the prep  after years of gels /  silicone / polish and dear knows what  the surface had to be really clean  the painting was the easy part

Colin,

Nice car and nice paint job.

As you state the art is getting it clean and free from previous treatments especially silicone.

Assume you used a plastic adhesive promoter as well to aid the bond of the paint ?

Im thinking of doing the same later this summer, did you go gloss or satin, looks too shiny for a satin or matt in the photos.

Looks cracking.

Nice job looks so much better, did you remove all the plastic or mask up and spray it on the car?
