I remember when I sprayed my interior solx suggested that I didn't spray it red because it looked awful.

Whe he posted up the pics of his anthracite ZR I had to agree. Its too bright and just doesn't look right.

In the end I opted for rover gun metal grey but soon put the standard vents etc back in.

It didn't get added for some reason. Few peeps have tried it and said it worked well for them.


Hope this helps. It's from a guide I wrote !

Right. Today I have taken the plunge and started spraying my interior parts.
Before I was unsure about it but it is actually incredibly easy. So I thought I would do a step-by-step guide for those who have never done it before. It may seem like an idiot guide but the more detail there is the more people may want to give it a try.

Try it out on a random piece of plastic first until you get the hang of it.

Equipment

-Halfords Primer (I used white but it depends what colour you are using)
-Halfords Gloss White (Obviously depends what colour you want)
-Halfords Clear Laquer
-Scouring pad (Just as good as any sandpaper)
-A Dirt / Dust Free Enviroment

(NOTE - When spraying hold the can a minimum of 4-6 inches away from the surface. This applies to primer / the main colour and Laquer. Use fast, light strokes with the can. Hold your finger lightly on the can nozzle and don't press too hard)

Step 1 - Preparing

To begin clean the item you want spraying from any dirt or dust and ensure it is totally dry before the next step. Make sure you give your cans a good shake.

Step 2 - The Surface

Begin by using the scouring pad on the surfaces you want to paint to rough up the surface, it doesnt have to be jagged but as long as you can see scratches on the surfaces you want to paint, you will be fine.

Step 3 - Surface Light Spray

This I found can be tricky. The secret is not to go all out to spray the entire item a total match. Give it a light spray and leave until it is totally dry. This firt layer acts as a base to build up a good prime. If it' patchy don't panic.

Step 4 - Finish The Prime.

Once step 3 is dry add another layer, this is the main basecoat that will ensure a good finish. You may need to touch up a couple of areas lightly after it has dried.

Step 5 - The main colour.

After the primer is dry then you can start with the main colour. Spray as with the primer until a basic light coat is applied. Leave to dry.
When that layer has totally dried finish it off with another light final coat.

Step 6 - Laquer

To seal the paint and protect it, spray the Laquer over the surface. Just one well applied coat will do. Leave to dry and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
