Paint for scuttle tray and wiper arms


My scuttle tray and wiper arms are faded and flakey. Has anyone got any recommendations on paint to get them back to tip top condition? Some sort of matte dark grey I'd guess?

Use any spray paint. Just rub them down, prime and then spray. Have done that with Mk1 156 mirror bases which were black and the alluminium had caused all the paint to flake off.

Don't use just any paint for the scuttle. Use a plastic paint designed for the job and you don't then need a primer.

Halfords | Halfords Plastic Bumper Paint Black 300ml

I have seen the results on a 75's plastic and it looked great.

Wiper arms need a wire brush or rub down to remove flaky old paint and key the old surface. This will need prime and paint. I am using a satin finish on mine.

Good advice from Mitch !

All I did was clean with chain cleaner (alcohol based) and painted with satin paint from Halfords, same with wiper arms but sanded with 120 grit paper. (probably a bit too coarse) It was all I had.

Looks quality, like new
