Re: painting?

scrub them with warm soapy water and a scourer... make sure you get all the paint that might be lifting... THen sand them with 800 grade... prepsol them, spray adhesive promoter on.. Then spray texture coat on the sections that are not smooth to even out the surface... THen spray puttty or hi-fill, then undercoat.. 1200 grit wet and dry after that.. THen re-prepsol and apply the color, finish with a few coats of clear.. Then 2000 any orange peel or blemishes and use some buffing compound to return the shine

Re: painting?

I found n' easy way to remove silicone on textures was to heat softly with a heat gun and rub with plenty of prewash lightly sand any previous paint finishes smooth with 600 .. then plastic prime / colour coat n' clear alot of products are designed for wet on wet these days to maximize adhesion and save time ..

Dont let me paint them. I got the grill of my au2 it was they gray unpainted colour. Chucked on some filler then painted it with something autobarn mixed up end story didnt turn out very well. At least that bit gets replaced later on.
