DIY Paint questions...

Alright, this is a long shot but I figured I'd desgrace myself and ask some questions. First off, I have a full set of 95 sc gfx that I want to install. I dont really wanna pay for paint, as I'm getting the whole car repainted sometime in the future. Is there a way I can rattle can this stuff and actually make it look good and last decent? I think I can get away with at least the sideskirts. What should I do for the prep and paint? Primer? Bulldog? Give me some suggestions please!

paint it black no matter what your car color is, if your gonna spray paint it, at least black is hard to mess up, haha.

Go to and autobody supply shop they will be able to sell you paint in a spray can the supplier I use can put any color in a spray can. I needed to paint a mirror so I went to buy a pint of BC and CC it would of cost me $90 to paint a mirror. The spray can of BC was $18 and the CC was $12. Do not get enamel paint if your going to repaint later BCC will lift the enamel paint.

The problem that i see with doing it though.Is getting i back to you in a safe manner without damage. If you can come to kc to pick up when finished.Then i don't see a problem.Is it a full kit or just the front.

I am also in the middle of getting ready to build a new shed so me and my father can get the crap out of my garage. To have more room to work.
