    Morning

    I'm thinking of getting a front splitter - it comes with a sort of black gel coat finish. I want to spray it the same colour as my car - titanium silver.

    Any ideas what sort of paint I need for this and where to buy from?
    Will this need to be primed and what should I use for priming?

    Also, I want to spray my dark grey/black bumper trim the same colour, could I use the same spray/paint as above or would I need a different type of paint as the trim is plastic?

    Thanks

    for the primer halfrauds will be fine however when I got Alpine white from them its a different colour to my BM so don't really trust them now

    Oh right, thanks for that mate I'll try and steer clear of them if I can find somewhere else decent - I did use them for my old E36 for red and they were fine but that was for wax
