    I like what you have done to the back bumper - did you have to use plastic primer?
    I've never really done any body work.

    thanks just been reading your thread very impressive, i'll swap you some of those electrical skills for some paint training ;-) i'm a fitter to trade or was in my last job

    me and that backbumper have a love hate realtionship i think i change something on it at least once a month, just a good clean and some normal primer and paint and it gets a good hold, if you wanted to be sure you could use etching primer but normal primer works fine as long as the prep is good

    @PB2.7TDI nice job mate it will look great

    Lights come out really easy I'll stick a couple of photos on here tomorrow to show you what u need to take off

    I do spray paint but the tint spray is a lot easier than spraying, just put all the lights next to each other so you can make sure both sides go the same shade but not to close to get over spray on them

    apply light even coats until your happy with the shade think I done 3, but better to do more light coats with no runs if you feel happier with that than go to heavy and put a run in it

    Cheers dude, that would be great.
    What's the options if I muck it up?
    Can this be chemically cleaned off or is it permanent?

    im Gona try the full black out see how it looks, cause let's be honest if I don't like it I'll just change it back anyway so it's worth a try

    I'll leave the rear diffuser to match the wheels

    On the boot lid the metal screw with a flat screw driver or socket and it lifts out

    image.jpg

    Main light the plastic screw and the light pulls back towards you the front of the light is just in with locating pins, when your re fitting put a bit washing up liquid on them so they slip in easy

    Hope this helps bud

    Chop you r a legend. Will post results up when I get round to giving this a go. I was taking to a mate Who does a lot of spraying and he said to warm the paint can up a bit first to make the paint thinner and should avoid runs. Does that Sound Right

    No problem at all mate, yeh I usually have a heater on in garage, if it's been In the shed or that then yeh get it up to room temp and give it a good shake, and a few sprays first on floor or that to get paint through nozzle

    Make sure they are really dry before you try and fit them so you don't get finger prints in them when pushing the side pins in

    Good luck
