trunk lid trim...
Painting for the lid trim took about two days...I did about 4 coats originally. Then messed up and it came out dark red. Then I spent about three hours lacquering off the paint and sanding it back down to the bare plastic before priming and painting again.
I got it on the second try. The key to paint matching is spraying lots of "very light" coats until the paint matches instead of spraying few thick "gloopy" coats.
I have more pictures up of the painting I did with tips in the DIY/FAQ section so check it out.
Last of the FSU warmth!
DIY for this coming!
