    Actallu they sell cans at the paint store that come with some air can and you just add your paint and use it like a regualr spray can but you can use good paint with proper additives. Never tried it cause I have a compressor and several paint guns but it looks cool

    Use scuff pad, sanding paste, clean and spray some adhesion promoter before painting.

    well, i messed around with a whole bunch of different options on here & maybe black is the best way to go...couldn't quite get the right shade of red to lay over....i'll try again some more over the weekend, but maybe not all colors are right for this..lol...i got a little excited and thot i'd tell others about it in case they wanted to try it out..but who knows...it's your decision...lol...& this is not as deep as the red would be....photoshop was bein gay like always..

    This is the best pic I have right now. I think black is fine obviously but navy blue might be cool. I wonder what white would look like - maybe too ricy. I will mess around in photoshop as well.

    I hate having those gaps too; it would improve the car's looks so much more if they were flush...
