I've worked with a gun several times before, just don't have my own. Painters around this area are extremely expensive, and tend to "ahem" screw up my instructions on anything I've ever asked to be painted in the past. It's not very difficult to do.

Paint + Reducer + Clear coat + Gun = $300 aprox. Plus I'll have plenty of paint left over in case I decide to do anything else.

From what I have found out Porsche has two different "alu look" colors (+Artic Silver). The one that came in 03 is also sometimes referred to as "sport silver". I have some parts in this color, and it looks like it does not have a clear on it (interior door handles, airbag badge on doors, the little thing that covers one of the bolts on the door pull bar, dashboard strip, gear and handbrake (+carbon)). I have some additional parts (eg 99 instrument surround) that I would have liked to have in the same color, but are not available from Porsche - so if this is the exact same color as I have then this find would be good news for me. :)

Did you ever manage to get further along with this mod or have the holidays interfered to significantly with your tinkering? ;)

Holidays have "delayed" my tinkering at the moment. But I'll be back on track in a few weeks and will post an update :)

Hi guys

Before spraying do you know if you have to rub down the plastic and get of the rubber coating that seams to cover all plastic parts?? I scuffed my plastic trim that hold the bonnet release button with my foot and it seamed to remove some sort of coating!!! any idea's?

We discussed the bonnet/boot handles in this post:

http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...ost&p=35213

The problem with respraying the handles is that one looses the graphics. It is possible to find just the one handle to replace, as noted on the thread above.

Apparently in Blighty Porsche™ stills sells them individually.

Cheers,

Alex
