    I'm looking to paint my front lower spolier myself, and if it goes well the two rear B pillars in gloss black also.

    I've found a few decent sites, on how to apply the paint, but it's more the materials side I need advice on.

    I want a lovely gloss black finish.

    So I need-

    Primer, paint, lacquer and some grades of wet & dry, and a 3M hand scuff pad.

    Where is the best place to source this kind of stuff? What makes are decent for paint? What gardes and make of wet&dry do I need?

    Obvioulsy the front lower spolier is plastic, so far I have only bought some grey Tetrosyl primer as a start. Prepping and correcting during the process is key. If it goes well, I'll attempt the rear B pillars.

    Any tips, pointers appreciated. I know I could pay someone, but would rather at least try and do it myself, if it looks cack, then I'll give in :)
