    DIY Respray - Gun Metal Grey

    Cheers for the comments, I don't see the heat in the UK being a problem lol. I've decided that for what it's going to cost me, it's definately worth going down the plasti dip route. I'm looking forward to seeing how i comes out, anything will be an improvement over the current paint!

    I love the dip your car videos, been watching the tutorials etc. Game plan is as follows. 1. I'm going to use a spray booth so I can have a completely dust free environment. 2. I'm going to ensure that the surface of the car is as clean as it would be if I was going to paint. 3. Follow the...

    Just had a thought as it seems it be easier to get. Gonna scrap off the grey and go for a nice deep gloss black. Is this any harder to spray?

    I'm not a patient person but I also like to go all in and try my hand at anything so I'm being patient on this. Im cheating on the bumpers a bit, they need quite a lot of repair so going to order some new ones in primer, unless anybody has any good condition ones going here? Preferably s3 front...
