    Whats the best way to paint the side mirrors and cowl. I want the color to be the same as my car and shiny not flat. Also maybe the door bezels, gauge cluster bezel also painted white. How do i prep these. the door bezels have the typical flakage and chipping as most sn95 owners do.

    Sand out any imperfection first, if none use a red scotch-brite pad that you can pick up at any local body shop or store and scuff. Your going to want to wet the part and sprinkle Comet believe it or not on the part to help as a contaminate remover so that the paint will adhere properly so the plastic, fish-eyes are a pain in the balls...lol. Im not sure if your painting them or not but if you are make sure to hit it with some wax and grease remover (PPG makes this) and use Plastic Adhesion Promoter(Also another PPG product). When your ready hit it with some sealer that is close to the darkness of your vehicle followed by a few layers of basecoat and then 2-3 coats of clear.
