Hey guys.

My sexay red xr strip has faded to pink cos the b**ch that had it before me didn't know how to use a car cover in the summertime.
Anybody what paint code I should use to recolour it? Venom red from the AU? Le Mans from the EL... And it's just plastic isn't it... will it be easy enough to take off, spray and put back on?

I don't wanna buy them new... 500 is ridiculous. I know a panel beater and can get them sprayed for about 100 i just need to know what colour paint to use.

Basically one guy said they are solid red plastic so you should actually be able to sand them back and just polish them up again!
