Default FT: Morette Housings Painted WRB

I have acquired some morettes, and should receive them early next week.
They are painted WRB, and my car is AW.

I plan to have them painted AW, but I thought I might check and see if anyone locally is in need of painted housings in WRB.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1774720

I would need unpainted (housings only) or better yet AW in return.

Might be a long shot, but just in case I can help someone out before the WRB gets wasted.

Please PM.

Actually pretty easy to paint them yourself. Almost any auto body shop should be able to mix you up AW in a rattle can

I've heard some horror stories about paintscratch and some other online vendors, so I was going to have a shop do it. I didn't realize that local body shops could do this too.

What kind of prep is necessary, in terms of roughing up the current coat, primers, sealants, clearcoats?

I painted mine myself from paint from paintscratch.com
(first time trying it also)

made up my own layers for the black with semi-gloss black under a "satin" clearcoat

The prep isn't bad. It's the masking that took most of the effort.

Awesome, thanks for the pics!!

Did you scuff them up to start? 1000grit sandpaper or better? I'm a little nervous since ill be painting over a finish coat already.

Ya, I used cleaner for the wax, tar, etc. and then I think I used a scuff pad then like 1,500 grit paper. (wet sand)

If you do it, take your time and don't sell yourself short. (a tack rag is your friend)

I used one spray can, but I would recommend getting two in case something were to happen. Plus you can put more layers on if you want.
