Hi, I have been thinkin of doing a similar thing on my corsa.

Just wondering what method did you use to smooth the plastic before spraying them smooth. Because they are bumpy as standard. I have used filler primer in the past and sanded back but it ended up cracking.

Any help appreciated thanks

we rubbed them down with 240 paper till they were completly smooth, then get a damp cloth and take any dust that may stil be left on there,then before spraying then make sure u cover them in a good coat of plastic primer or they wil just start to flake after a while
