Re: Color matching Mk4 look lights (Salty D)

I figured that much but what about the actual painting should i use a special paint or can i just use touch up paint from the deal and should I put clear coat on or not because of the shininess ( I dont think thats actually a word). Also should I mask off the actual lenses

Just make sure to use low tack, or adhesive tape when masking off the chrome you want to keep, because if u use regular masking tape it will pull the chrome off it really easily, and then you have ugly lights.
