    I just bought an unpainted lip spoiler for my 2018 cruze LT. My car is graphite metallic and im looking to be pointed towards the right direction for paint. Should I just spray paint it after sanding it with like 2000 grit? Anyone have any paint they would recommend that is the correct color...

    So I want to get my new Z Spec grille painted in gloss black. I took it to a local body shop and the guy looked at it and said immediately he won't do it. Said that textured plastic is impossible to have paint adhere to. And that it would eventually start chipping/peeling from rock chips. He...

    Anyone that has any good help, HELP! Do I need any special tools to paint my brake calipers red? I'm hoping to just take off the two bolts, brush sand it, spray caliper cleaner on it, tape it off, prime it, & put 2 coats of red caliper paint on it. I'll make sure to NOT get ANY primer or paint...

    Hey everyone, So I unfortunately noticed quite a few scratches on the body of my car... They aren't so much gouges as just long scratches. Does anyone have a good walk thru of how to use touch up paint? I've never done it before, and do not want to mess it up. Thanks, Ben

    I'm thinking of painting my front calipers red. I'm debating on if I should paint the back drums red to match. Would it look dumb painting the drums? Does anyone have pics with caliper/drum combo painted on their cars? Any recommendations for paint brand to use?

    New here with a question. Is it possible to paint over or plastidip the LTZ 18" painted alloy rim bowties? I've looked for replacement center caps, but they all look really cheap, so would rather do it myself. Was thinking about painting over the gold with touch up red to match the paint of...
