To be honest it was so easy to do, all i did was give them a really really good clean (i mean really good in the bath with a toothbrush) and then sprayed with Plastidip matt black, cost about 40 quid, on close up look its not as good as professional job, but if you want them done cheap and quick they look good, plus if i decide i want a different colour i just remove and respray with the different colour Smile

Nah Not dificult at all really, its all in the prep, make sure theres as clean as you can get them (i did mine in the bath with a toothbrush which got me in trouble lol) then you just spray it on, leave till its tacky rather than wet and spray again, i ended up useing a can a wheel so that the coating is nice and thick, not really had any problems, only thing in u have to be patient, which im not and i did put them on the car alittle early and have a few runs, so if you can leave them off for a few hours to dry then yourll be good
