How do I????

Right then very soon I'm going to be changing my coil pack, while I've got the cover off I'd like to be able to make it blue instead of black.

What do I need and what steps are required please, I know there's people who know how to do this, so advice would be great.

Clean it, sand it, spray it

I just used normal plastic primer, colour and lacquer. Just the stuff you can get in spray cans from Halfrauds. I'm not great at stuff like that and still managed to get half decent results.




It should stand the test of time too - this was about 2-3 years after doing my old z32 covers

It's all in the prep if the primer looks good then that's how the colour finish will be, take your time when applying the colour thin coats and build it up. Once lacquered if the finish isn't as desired you can rub down with 2000 grade paper and polish using T cut.
I'm in the body repair industry so if you need more details then Pm me

sorry man dont mean this to sound rude but your in the body industry and you recomend t cut?
Im a sprayer and id never advise someone to use t cut, to me thats like telling them to wash there car with fairy liquid, yeah it gets it clean and looks nice in the short term but in the long term its not good. probably good for bussiness from your point of you but not for someone that actually wants to look after there car. i cant agree with you more on everything else you said just not the t cut.
