I am purchasing a Boeser hood and black outside rearview mirrors. My car is white and I want to get Zender spoiler. Is it possible for me to paint the spoiler myself? I want to paint it black to match the other black parts on the car. I think it would look awesome! Any ideas? :? :b5:

search around the internet a little!! go to google or something and type in car paint, or touchup paint. you can get all the info you need on how to paint parts of a car with aerosol spray paint. it should be easy for you since you won't have to do any serious color matching. good luck! :)

VW offers an aresol can of exact color touch up paint. I got it along with the clear coat protectant they sell as well. Looks perfect. Just clean the material well.

OEM Paint from Liberty VW. Its 150 oz bottle with the clear coat for about $7. You need very thin sand paper, 3 coats of good quality primer, 3-4 coats paint and 4 coats of clear coat, Sand in between where you have inperfections. Use thin coats so it wont drip. Wait to dry between coats.
I did all my spoilers,eyelids...
Good luck

It should be fairly easy. Follow these instructions that are for eyelids, but of course use your spoiler. The concept should be the same.

I am afraid Meltemie might be mistaken. I believe that the bottle is 150ml not oz. 128oz = 1 gallon. Another good source for paint is www.paintscratch.com. They have pretty decent prices for amounts larger than 150ml. Good Luck.

Thad. :D
