    got to put a new wing and nosecone on the car.
    but they will need to be sprayed, will it be easier if i get them sprayed before or after i put them on?
    and any idea of the cost?
    one is already painted but in the wrong colour. would it bring the cost down if i was to strip it first with something like nitromors? (or similar)
    thanks.
    if you see a silver flash go past and smell burning rubber..........it means you were going too slow!

    I think it would be easier to spray them before putting them on the car to be honest, that way you won't have to cover up all the areas of the car you don't want to get covered in paint, less risky, less hassle.

    you dont need to strip the paint off them just sand them down take all the shine off them. use 600 grade wet and dry(the black sandpaper) and you should be sorted
