ill be painting the grey section of the front and rear bumpers and the grey strip above the chrome strip on the sides of my car.. Should i go gloss black or body coloured? My car is an NA Fairlane and its Fairlane Gold.
If i go body coloured how do i get the exact matching colour to the rest of the panels? ie what paint prep. This will only be the second time ive sprayed anything, ive done every part around my windows black instead of stock grey. Any help appreciated :wink:

Body colour.
EA-ED/NA-NCII look much better with colour coded trim strips.

yep body colour, makes it look a bit more cleaner. I'd be taking the moulds down to a panel shop. They should be able to match the colour up quite well

the moulding on the front and rear is part of the bumper iirc, the side mouldings you can get off by running string or fishing line behind them and cutting the glue.
