    hey i'm about to start making my satoshi and i was wondering how i should paint my new grille that i ordered? It was cheaper to order a base black color but i plan to paint it radiant red.... Rattle can it or take it somewhere for it to be proffesionally done?

    Haven't painted a grille, but i did my mirror covers like this:

    1. sand the sheen off the chrome
    2. apply adhesion promoter
    3. 3 coats of paint from ebay seller spraycansunlimited (perfect match)
    4. 2 coats of clear coat

    It's held up for a year now with no chipping.

    alright cool i'll have to look up that company on ebay... i'm just afraid that i'll paint it and it won't match at all, i got a quote from a paint shop and they said 38 dollars for half a pint of radiant red and then another 5 to put it in a rattle can
