Hello Forum,

I recently bought a toe hook eye cover which comes primed but unpainted. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get this painted at a reasonable price? Going to a body shop seems like overkill.

Thanks,
Michael

Some auto supply shops (Lordco here in BC is one) will mix up a spray can of paint using the correct paint code, for about $30. I got one in the correct orange for my Boxster and the match is perfect. Then you just spray the piece yourself and install it.

Would this work? It's just the toe cap so it doesn't need to be perfect. Sorry if these are stupid questions. I'm quite a novice when it comes to car painting.

Should work fine. And if you aren't happy with the results the first time, just strip the paint off with some thinner or acetone and try again. Have fun!

I just had some items powder coated. It was relatively inexpensive and they can match a lot of colors.
