Good diy

Hope the paint remains for long time.

kudos for great DIY buddy! but i also agree with ilango..will this paint remain for long time?

Great work bro.I liked the paint quality.But painting a plastic part can be tricky.

Cheers[cheers]
Thanks and I am hoping the paint will last for quite some time. Its a tricky situation but hey ! I was about to replace it and no harm in trying it out. I am quite amazed by my skills [lol].


Congratulations and the outcome is awesome. These black plastic parts fade much earlier and spoil the overall looks if not kept polished. I am sure people will benefit with this small yet effective DIY. Great job. [thumbswink]

I have never tried it but Ilango has replied to this and in my opinion painting the rubber might make it stiff and paint may start cracink up soon.


Really nice pics. i m appreciated but i have no more information about this.

wow dude! congrats. have you gotta after before pics for comparing??

Unfortunately I did not click the before pics :(
But, I have other plastic bits on the car that had teh similar look. I will take a snap in some time and put it up.

The Can of spray paint costed my Rs270 and the Primer Spray can was for Rs190. I picked it up from Home Town here in Hyderabad.

Results looks great! Kudos for Diyers.
Cheers


caution: (from one of the pic above) never use sprays and such chemicals inside home they contain too hazardous contents which evaporate quickly and get mixed with Air you inhale.
