I did it all myself, if I did it again id do it differently, Iv learnt alot about it.... Just too late lol.
The side strips are gloss black, they were quite easy after smoothing them out, place on eBay does rattle can indium grey, and the match is pretty much perfect, £20 for a can and laquer, just used Halfords primer, but soon realised the 1k lacquer is just shit, (Halfords one is even worse) even after 4 coats and left to dry for days you can still mark it with your finger nail, got some two part 2k lacquer off eBay and that was 10x better dries much harder.
My main error was not buffing after the lacquer (still havnt with the spoiler or number plate trim and side rail cover) but honestly if you don't really look hard you would never notice,
Been spraying a few interior bits over last few days and I'm polishing them up with T-cut like I did with the grill and they look almost mirror like.
I must say it's been a f**king pain to do though, so much messing up and doing it again!
I'm just cheap and think ahhhh why not try it myself, how hard can it be??? Then I find out!!
If u do decide on doing it yourself
That's the indium grey eBay number
That's the 2k better lacquer
