Hey,

Does anyone know how closely you can colour match if you wrap a part as opposed to painting it?

I was considering getting prices to wrap a spoiler on my milano red civic.

Not necessary lol someone buying a new spoiler would be good enough ;-)
Guess that is the other, safer and nicer option! lol.

Although either works for me. :rolleyes:

Now, I know that I am a customising newbie, but, how difficult is it to paint your own spoiler ... does it really require a body shop with loads of fancy kit, or can you not just get a colour matched pot of spray paint of eBay?

Awaits the roars of laughter :(

Not really considered carbon .... any gallery pics of a carbon wrapped spoiler on a milano red?
I always think Milano and carbon look great together.... A few people have done bonnets but not sure about spoilers, am sure I've seen a Mugen wing done in carbon but cant find the images...

I'm trying to see it in my head ... red and carbon do go well ... but I did sort of have my mind set on a red type r/s spoiler.

Saint you can diy it at home with some rattle cans of the correct colour, however it is not an easy process as you have to completely flatten the surface working through different grades of wet and dry paper, prime, flat back, spray colour, lacquer, flat back and then polish back to a gloss!

You need to take your time not to get any dust or dirt in the finish or worst of all a run or it will completely spoil the look!

So basically, it is possible, but unlikely that I will be able to do it to high enough standard lol.

Missed your post rowbo, I'll take a look and get back to you.

Where's the best place to buy the vinyl?
