Re: Painting Alto ORVM

The colour of the ORVM matches well with the rest of the car. [thumbsup] Sorry for my poor knowledge but is this a K10? Can you please mention the approximate market price of those Spray paints?

It is more suitable for metal parts.
If painted directly on fiber/plastic parts it may peel off on power water service and on exposure of sunlight for a long period.
Normally a chemical treatment is done to the plastic/fiber parts before painting, and it is advisable in this case too.

400 ml
after painting both ORVM, weight reduced more than 50%
(but i spray few times on metal roof sheet as a trial)

nothing mention in the label about applicable surface area

In the label it recommend for "wood, steel & iron, aluminum alloy, galvanized steel and other metals"
examples given in the label "refrigerator, washing machine, fan, table, bicycle, helmet, motor"

Re: Painting Alto ORVM

So did you also apply the plastic primer ?


Any way, the mirror looks good now, why not paint the door handles too ?
