    Cheers, I think the grilles and rear diffuser stand out more now they have been sprayed ...

    Looks great. I've always thought of Albi as a bit of a 'meh' colour, but Tom's car and seeing this makes me like it more.

    What products did you use?

    Good results Russell, the car looks great! Spraying the grilles does make such a difference, well worth doing.

    What paint did you use on the grilles and diffuser if you don't mind me asking @6705russell?

    For the grilles and diffuser I used Hammerite satin spray (metal spray paint), if you just key with 1200 wet and dry and (do not use any primer or the spray will react to it) and give it 4 coats with and hour or so between each coat, leave for 2-3 days and it will cure like stone.
