Started the work on the spoiler today started rubbing down and filling any imperfections. I then put 3 x coats of primer onto the spoiler Then sanded it down to get it smooth and to take out any dust ect. Then I put 2 more coats on and sanded again After this I put two light coats of black paint mainly to use this as a Gide coat I have now left this over night before I sand it down with 1500 wet and dry so I no it's flat ready for the 4 wet coats tomorrow.
After this it will be left to dry till the weekend to harden up ready for color sanding and cutting to get the shine and fit.

The spoiler is not finished and ready for fitting when the other half gets home.
I think for spray cans its come out really well once it's fully hardened I will use some cutting polish on it but that will be in about a month.
