    Lightly sanded it, then got a bit of plasti-primer from a mates bodyshop, 4 coats of red paint.
    Took me an hour to mask up, the used a scalpel blade to scrape away the excess, to be honest it was an absolute nightmare, although it was my first attempt at it, leave it to the pro's i think in the future lol
