u cant just paint over it..u gotta make it come off somehow..by chemcial or sand paper. not really sure...but i know u can buy spray paint of ur bmw color from the dealer and u can paint itOriginally posted by KMracing@Apr 18 2003, 09:22 AM
So this is an easy process (as in doable)... As for able to do this.... i can do practically anything anyone can do with cars just need to learn it first... and then theres my dad who can do more than anyone.... so im covered. but i dont wanna pay 300 bucks if i can just get it off/paint it myself.
If i bought the paint... how would i paint it? I noticed today the side skirts are on there pretty well... and same with the bumpers... would i need to sand off the paint? never heard of that with plastic....
nono not needed to go all out like that..Originally posted by GreenDragon@Apr 18 2003, 08:33 PM
If your going to do it right you need to sand, primer, paint, sand, paint, wet sand, paint, sand some more, paint, then a few layers of clear coat. Otherwise you run the risk of the paint chipping, bubbling, or just looking plain chitty.
