    Painted Front Spoiler

    I took my car in to have the front (and rear) spoiler painted to match (Guards Red) the rest of the car. Body Shop said that they were concerned with getting the paint to stick to the spoiler since it was textured. Some other Rennteamers had their spoilers painted. Did you hear such concerns??? They were concerned that the first time the spoiler rubbed the ground the paint would peel (pop) off?

    Re: Painted Front Spoiler

    I took delivery of my GT Silver 997 TT on Sept. 1, 2006 and had the front and rear spoiler (lip) painted. I don't know what type of primer or paint used by the paintshop (dealer contracted at no charge to me)
    The rear has never been scraped and is like the day it was first painted. The front lip has had 4 incidents of scraping when entering or exiting a significant curb / ramp. The paint was only scraped on the underneath surface and is not visible by a straight on view (with your head looking straight at the car while crouched down). You can feel a rough surface with your fingers when rubbing the underside of the lip.
    No paint chipped on the front view vertical surface.
    I now have a second (spare) lip painted as a replacement if needed. The cost was under $300 CDN (lip and paint combined), which is probably less expensive than repairing the old one.
    I am very pleased with the look of painted spoilers and rocker panels. No issue with stone chips on the sides of the car, even after 10,300 km.

    Find another body shop. They obviously have no clue. There is a product called "Bulldog" that is used to get paint to adhere to anything. Don't be their guinea pig

    Re: Painted Front Spoiler

    Yes, they have to sand it down smooth(easy), then use an additive in the paint that will allow flexing.

    Re: Painted Front Spoiler

    when the painted f/r and sides come from the factory are they smooth or textured as when not painted...in any event id consider 3m if painted... road ditrius impact, flying and otherwise, is enividible speed....definitely find a better paint guy

    Re: Painted Front Spoiler

    smooth painted, textured plain.
