even if you put decals on the spots that rub, they will just rub through and ruin the decals.
I've been meaning to paint them for a long time and even bought some paint once but then wasn't sure how to sand/prep and didn't end up doing it. I might as well give it a shot as the original gray is peeling off and looks pretty bad.I would think so. If the plastic is smooth you have to scuff it up a bit and use a good adhesion promoter compatible with the paint you plan to use.
For the coil covers, which are notorious for the OEM paint flaking off, I'd sand as much of the original paint off as I could before repainting.Don't sand into the plastic itself. Just sand into the paint. Use very fine sandpaper and wet sanding works much better. Using an adhesion promoter is a really good idea on plastic.
Good info, but what to do about the notoriously broken tabs that clip on to the fuel rails? $400+ for a new pair only to have the tabs break 10K miles in doesn't sit well. Anyone solved the tab issue?For the coil covers, which are notorious for the OEM paint flaking off, I'd sand as much of the original paint off as I could before repainting.
