Yes mine was booth sprayed off the car with the blower torn down and about three hours of prep! The coating is not thick just good quality so knock down the ruff stuff prep all good and shoot very very very light coats should turn out well!

I'm actually pulling mine back off and apart to fix where the Jack Shaft spon losse it won't be as bad to prep but I'm sure I can DIY it for everyone!

So I can just add it to my factory IOM and paint it then?

I guess I better go get me a cheap spray gun.

Also, I like the textured look. It will still have that right?

I'd really appreciate a DIY on how to paint my red Maggie orange. I have the next 4-5 months to prep & paint.

I would think if you just scuffed it up lightly it should still have the textured look. Don't foget sealer,paint with addtive and yes it just adds to the paint,then clear.

This is only a few months old so I'm not necro-threading...

Any thoughts on getting some paint mixed w/ a little high temp and then brushing it on with a sharp brush? I'm thinking of doing the "ribs" on my whipple in VR to match the car. I have an artistic friend with a hand much more steady than mine.

Has anyone painted one DIY? I'm thinking of doing some G2 caliper paint or getting something mixed in a rattle can and shooting it on the car. Please don't make me be first.
