    haha new people would love it :P yeah did l9ook at plasti but i like the idea of it reversible if i didn't like it etc, however spray painting is something i am good at (or i like to think i am)

    roof done finally didn't come out smooth at all has a few wrinkles in it but i was getting to angry.

    day two of vinyl.

    wings were really quite easy, alot easier than i thought they would be so this made me happy





    i poped the side light out to make it easier but then lost it :/ so had to take the inner trim out and found a unholy amount of dirt behind it so glad thats clean now

    then did the rear



    mess up a bit on the corners, i have fixed it up a bit better now, but im thinking about masking off the top and roof and plasti the roof rails and the bottom of the spoiler bit

    ordered two cans of plasti dip

    decided to go slightly two tone






    there will be no blue but im just waiting on a new delivery of vinyl as ran out, the idea is spraying around the windows black, and the bumpers i will spray electric orange (focus rs) as its the closest i can find that match's it.

    well i ordered more vinyl for the doors and tail gate but they have ran out of stock so have to wait a week :/ dont want to chance getting it from somewhere else due to the colour.



    so i decided to paint the bumpers and my attempt failed and its £150 to get them done

    the closest match i found was electric orange (focus rs) no it dose not look it in the picture but its identical colour... or so i thought


    sprayed it after sanding and white primer etc

    and ended up with this....





    so i stopped let it bake in the sun hoping it will go darker and match the actual color its supposed to be, and in the mean time i used my remaining plasti dip and did my exhaust



    went back and fitted the bumper




    RAWR
    so now i have 2 options either i spray it black and have that color scheme but think it wont look anywhere near as good or pay for it to be wrapped.

    on the plus the exhaust looks good i think


    and for some reason im am incapable of remembering to put these bits back on before fitting the bumper do it everytime


    next up in the next week while i wait for vinyl oil change and fitting my tip

    Just wait for the vinyl dude.

    ST orange is way different to that (mrs has one), they also have a red primer i think under the orange colour.

    ST orange is metallic though. And in Sunlight has a very golden/yellow shine to it.

    it will NEVER match.

    yeah fair point, i hate paying people to do a job tho, but think i will have to bite the bullet. was only thinking of spraying it again as its so easy and cheapish.

    i havnt looked into tbh as im assuming it will either be close to or more money and also the vinyl has a matt finish so they will probably charge a bit more for paint (only a guess tho)

    Who cares what anyone else thinks Tim, its your car, and its orange, so its got to be a winner. Orange is awesome.

    Did you fancy selling that front bumper that won't fit? Where abouts in Kent are you mate?

    Don't listen to him Tim, at least you didn't get your car turned down by one of the biggest tuners in the country.

    You're my hero, I'm proud of you. And your attitude is ****ing epic, not an ounce of negativity. Keep up the good work, you'll get there.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    some parts of the vinyl looks like you've done a fair job tbh, just redo the ugly bits when the new stock turns up, but spraying parts which you ran out of vinyl for was a silly idea tho like Karl says, it'll never match, id have put the money in my fuel tank haha

    Not happy this morning, woke up to find this...



    not sure how this happened, and now in a dilema of do i wrap it and try and match it up to the line, take the wrap off the rear panel and do it all in one go i.e. have to buy more or get more plasti dip and try again?

    Not seen that before.

    Did you clean the panel fully?
    Was it a hot day or night?
    Any sign of people playing about with it or animals walking on it that could have teared it?

    De-wax and polish it. make sure there is nothing on it that would stop it from sticking.

    Do as many coats as you can and as evenly as possible.

    I assume you're using the rattle cans?

    Go over all of the painted areas with Iron-X and wash with boiled water which has been left to cool to strip back to paint.

    It will remove any fall out as well as any products previously applied and if you follow the instructions the paint and clear coat will stay perfectly safe.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
