    Lightbulb Sline / rs3 blade and valance

    Hi guys
    i have a smal chip in the rear of my 2009 A3 sline valance.
    Its just paint so I am not too fussed but I got me tthinking I may remove them both and reprint in bright silver
    rather than the matt grey colour that's on it now.
    any ideation on how to remove ? Also and clour codes?
    Rs


    Rear

    my sline


    Mira just the middle bit on the front I want too change

    As for that front splitter, I think on the facelift models it just unscrews. have a looks underneath and you should see a couple of fixings.

    i really want to spray mine gloss black as I have an ibis BE car.

    Might do it today actually! hmmm

    My thoughts exactly
    on the be the darker would look bbetter
    on the sline with crime grille silver would look better IMO

    right, well my splitters off. 5 torx. start pulling from each end to start with. go easy. it's basically a cover for an existing cross piece. so you don't want to yank the whole lot. just the outer shell.

    once each ends un clicked you just need a hard yank from the middle. then he's off. Just be careful with the thin down pieces, they're only crappy thin plastic.

    im off to find me a rattle can.

    Sorry, i should have been more specific, im doing the front, not the back.

    Just sanded all stone chips out of it, done first layer of primer.

    Then im gonna sand it again to make sure surface is mint, then one more primer, then a couple of coats of the shiny stuff.

    firstly I used wet and dry sand paper.

    I used a medium grade to start off with, just so I could get rid of some stone chips. Then after that I used a fine grade.

    I then cleaned it all up, sprayed some grey primer on it (2 coats).

    Then gloss black over the top (3/4 coats).

    Takes ages to dry. best to leave it overnight really.

    i used a brand called "plasti-kote" but any will do that suits exterior uses.
