    Sorry to hi-jack the thread, but Goughy where did you get the paint from?

    Having seen your compact with the colour coded strips, I think I'm going to go down the same route, but want to make sure that I get a good match for my paint.

    Cheers

    those are the three bolds mate. the shocker absorber comes out with the bumpers. undo all three then get the lugs out and pull the bumper off!

    the sensors were a nightmare to take out. a mate pulled them out for me by bendering the retainer clip back. be careful not to snap them though.

    Cheers Goughy - I'm in Tamworth.

    Looks like I have a few little jobs the compact to keep me busy on my week off. I'm looking forward to getting it done as I think it makes the compacts look a lot more modern (and also black grills won't look so silly).

    It'll be a spray can job - I was meg careful with the interior trim and that came out pretty dame well (well, I think so!). If it looks pants, I'll have to get a body shop tp do it for me.

    Did you do yours properly with a spray gun?

    yes mate 2pack paint mmutch better than a spray can, but if you've done the interior you should be ok just make sure you use plastic primer or it will peel off

    I still have some stuff left over from the interior and a damaged piece of bumper trim that I will paint to check that the olour is OK and the finish is up to scratch.
