some painting advice please..
I am painting my grille,wing mirrors and door handles anthracite to match my new wheel refurb I have the paint already....However there are some bits I am not 100% certain about so I thought I would ask you knowledgeable gents for some help.
I do have some spraying experience from re-finishing guitars but that's all on wood so not entirely relevant.
so, what are the Alfa blackline grilles made of? are they ali or chromed plastic and what would be the best primer to use with the solvent based aerosol paint I have?
and same for the mirrors, they look like plastic to me but i would like to be sure. nothing worse than spending loads of time keying and priming only for the paint not to take, it all looks like chromed plastic to me but good to have a definitive answer.
also a nice durable lacquer that will be hard wearing, the paint is satin so I imagine clear lacquer.
any suggestions ,tips,links to specific products you have used would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance for your suggestions..
