How Should I Paint my Center Console, HVAC and Engine Covers
I asked this in another thread but I didn't really get that many response so I think its own thread may help
I want to paint my Center Console, HVAC and Engine Covers Magentic Blue. I went to 3 local paint places and it'll cost 150-200 for the paint and the clear coat. For that I could probably just pay someone to do it. Now the paint at tower paint is alot cheaper so I'm thinking about going that route. I'm not lookin for a mirror finish but I do want it to look nice.
Should I order the Lacquer or Enamel filled cans?
With those cans do I need to clear coat them?
Is it really worth it (time and money wise) to build a paint booth like stan did? I'm going to be painting in the garage.
Will I need a plastic adhension promotor? To those that haven't used the promotor do you notice a difference?
Should I sand inbetween coats? Again I'm not looking for a mirror finish. Just something that looks nice.
Do you guys think I should just pay someone to paint them for me? I haven't painted anything except a model when i was in the 7th grade and it didnt turn out too well.
Also there really isn't much risk driving with the engine covers removed if I have to will there?
You can't rationalize cars like these, they're not something you buy with your head, you buy them with your heart because you love them and who can explain love. All I know is I love my lil elise more then I like any other car...
