I have a boot and spoiler i want to fit to my WRX, its currently half blue half sanded.

Will I do any sort of damage to the panels if I spray them a rattle can black so it sticks out less on the street?

Dont want to look to rough and attract unwanted attention but I cant afford a decent paint job atm either lol.

P.s. I know this is probably up there as the dumbest question asked on a forum ever but I genuinely have no idea about panel and paint. Not a freakin clue.

Shouldn't do. You'll prob need to sand it back again before the final painting though.

Ahem. I've just painted bonnet / under-bonnet / roof / rear spoiler and wing mirrors on the BF using only rattle cans. ;-) I did about 4 coats primer - then 4-5 top coats on the panels then did about 4-5 coats of satin clear on top.

I can't afford proper job either, but I reckon it'll do till later........

It's matt black of course ;-)

Thanks Gents.

I will just be doing Matte black also. Not to stressed about how it looks up close as it will get done soonish but I don't want to drive Palmy to Taupo with a half sanded boot and spoiler and maybe draw unwanted attention.

I used etch primer / primer filler / matte black from supercheap - and the satin clear from Bunnings. You probably don't need the clear if its only temporary, but the paint didn't react or anything like that.......

Cheers
