Well today I was off work and did not have alot to do, so I did what I was going to do when I first got my LCR splitter and that was spray it gloss black to match wheels for when they get done.

Here is a few images of it through the process of smoothing it and spraying.

Primed up and sanded slightly

sprayed black

Then sanded right back which got rid of all the bubbles and made it flat


Sprayed black again

First coat of laquer

Then second and third


It ended up looking berrer and it stands out more.

each coat was applied very thinly, and it has alot of screws to hold it on, so unless i drag it on to a curb it shouldnt

though I might re do mine on a new splitter as on left hand side i grounded it a bit which left big scuff marks in it so it dont look that great, but atleast I know it does look better painted gloss black.
