I know this has been covered before, but I have NO FAITH in the replacement coated plastic items from LR. They have simply done the same lifting again. So this time I purchased some color code matching spray paint (mine is Giverny Green) and set about doing some monochrome work around the car. FYI, I found that the simple cleaner "Goof Off" quickly stripped the rubberized paint coating from the plastic parts of the car. Just let it soak on a rag for about 15 seconds and it comes right off. This would explain why it so easily lifts from normal use (coke, perfumes, makeup, foods, etc).

This was today's work....

Next I will have the wheels color matched instead of the black (just got these Foose wheels off ebay for a good price) - and some of the interior plastic

I like the steering wheel accents...

I painted my door handles to match the stock gray exterior accents.



Nice color by the way :mrgreen:

:clap: Nice job! How was the spraypainting process for the wheel given the limited space. I imagine a good tape up??

I took the wheel spoke covers off, cleaned all the rubberized goo off of them, sanded them and then sprayed them. Took me about an hour.

The door handles I did the larger part on the car, but took the smaller part off the door, as they are easy to remove..... taped it all off and sprayed.

Looks great! I just did my hood cowling last week. Went the long way though. A couple coats, then some clearcoat with some amount of UV filtering in it.
Thanks for the tip on removing the small part of the door handles - I'll do them next.
I'm actually considering taping off the hood & hatch lettering & freshening them up too.
