Smile Bargain Honda Reversing Sensors... need a paint job

Hello all

I managed to get some genuine Honda reversing sensors from crown Honda
for a mere £50! It was an eBay auction which had no bidders and so I
rang them after and offered the cash. When they arrived the invoice
made me smile as it stated a discount of £290!
Thought I'd mention it invade anyone else wants some as they have a
few sets.

However...my only issue is that they are royal blue (great for my previous cts)
so I need to respray them crystal black.

What would the best way of doing this be? Can I buy spray cans of
hondas paint? Or will I need a bodyshop to do it? etc etc?

Thanks in advance

Ant

Buy a little vial of "touch-up" paint from the Honda dealer, sand down the existing paint on the sensors, then coat them with the new colour ...
