Hi, new to the forum but I've just ordered my white silver MCS and I'm awaiting a delivery date.
I'm also looking at changing to a black bonnet scoop when it arrives and had a couple of other options I've been considering:
Temporary solution- plastidip the scoop surround for a matte black finish that can be removed/ replaced later on
Permanent- a local paint shop has quoted me around £55 for a proper respray of the scoop.
Good alternatives to spending £200+ on importing a CF replacement for me...
I'm also thinking about plastidip for the chrome head and tail light surrounds for a meaner look
Yeah, I think that's what I'll end up doing pal, but I don't know of a good bodyshop near me. I used a company near work to cover a stone graze (who has boulders on their driveway anyway?) on my rocco before I chopped it in for my MCS.
Very nice! Did you dip the front grille chromework too? I'm trying to figure out how easy/difficult that will be to get off the car as presumably that would have a better finish, or did you dip while everything was still attached?
I wish to paint/dip the inside fake scoop intake plastic honeycomb part which blocks the actual intake. Has anyone removed/replaced this part before?
I don't want to remove this part entirely as I understand it's there to potentially reduce drag but I think it looks too obviously fake even from far away and maybe painting it black will make it a bit more stealthy?
