Just wondering who is doing your guys custom painting. I.E. The custom front grilles or eyelids. or are you ordering paint and doing it yourselves. Ohh also if you are buying the paint where are ya getting it? thanks

i get the paint locally as my price there is 1/2 of paintscratch. i do the custom painting if it's small if it was a big piece i'd have my friend who does paint jobs for mercedes do it.

i take it to a local body shop that way you always have top notch paint pn the parts and it dosent look like an amature job. IMO take them to a body shop it may cost a little more $ but you will be happy with the results.

I do all my paint work myself. I'm no professional, but it comes out great every time. Going to paint the inside of my headlights this weekend. Will post a thread with pictures when finished.

The stock eyelids seem very glossy. Does paint stick to them well? Or do they get primer'ed first? I've got a grille coming and then both grille and eyelids must get painted Lapis Blue....

Thanks.

Painting the inside of the headlights is a LOT different than doing a 3 stage primer, base, clear to a front grille.
