    painting fairing/plastic trims

    Hello all,

    My plastic trims that go round the seat are looking a bit old and tatty.

    what would be the best way to bring these back to life? would spraying them be any good. they have a few scratches so im guessing il need to sand them down first?

    thanks

    A lot of folks sand and paint them. Prep is everything in a paint job, so take your time.
