Looks good! I've bought pre-painted louvers before and they looked navy blue instead of kona...I was so bummed. Anyways your car is looking great as usual.

Thx John... Ya I was so worried when ordering it prepainted ...on top of that, I was worried about quality holding up..I.e. I thought it would start peeling after the first wash, lol. Luckily, been good so far.

Did you return the louvers?

Yeah they went back right away. I still keep my eye out on some used kona Roush louvers though.

There's a guy I know selling new ones pretty cheap, I'll see if he has kona. Even if they need repainting it's still worth it.

I had bookmarked your page Burton, to read again, when I was going to start with my spoiler.

I purchased the same spoiler as you did. And it looks so pretty. I was able to remove the old spoiler without any damage though.

I assume what he means by underhang is the underside of the spoiler.

I'm probably misunderstanding, but the underside of the spoiler needed to be painted, and then after that it needed to receive a nice clear coat. Isn't the clear coat sprayed on the top and the bottom at the same time ? What kind of overspray could there be?

I'm guessing it is not smooth to the touch. I imagine that can possibly buffed out with polish.

I personally prefer never buying prepainted parts, for several reasons including quality, due to mass/fast production. Not to mention unmatched paint. Imo it's always best to get a local shop to properly paint match. then you can also question quality issues face to face, without shipping pains.

I really hope that you can buff out the overspray and avoid shipping it back or perhaps getting it touched up locally.

Good luck

What's up Pascal. Glad I could help! Man, I can't believe I've had my car for 3 years now! Crazy.

But yes, I still have my spoiler on and love it. It's been perfect since day 1 and still is today. I still have to OEM one too, damaged as it may be

Yeah luckily I've had zero issues with mine. It was perfect from get-go. Still is today. And you guys KNOW what standards I have for paint and my car If it passes my standards, it's probably as close to perfect as can be

It depends of how the spoiler was oriented when it was painted ( hanging, or sitting in a rack). Another reason for the overspray could be the lack of a proper paint booth.

Sorry I saw the reply late. By the underhang I mean the underside near the brake light. When I clean the car I will post a pic.
