I am planning to refurbish my Mk3 speedo/rev counter holders/pods and like the original matt black finish, so want to restore that. However, it is either a very tough paint, because it just laughs at Nitromors paint stripper, or perhaps it is a form of anodising? I could just abrade them and spray them with a matt black paint, but would likely not be able to replicate that original hard wearing matt finish. I intend to take a holder to work and get the lab to tell me what the black finish is, but just wondered if anyone already knows precisely what it is?
Can you recommend an acrylic aerosol paint?
I have to do the same job!!!
my normal go to brand are Simoniz 500ml aerosols like in the photo, they probably have the grey primer as well, good stuff even on prepped plastics. I,m currently using some from a supplier who mixes their own near Southampton I think and they,re similar to the Simoniz.
Any acrylic aerosols including Halfords should be OK for the instrument holders.
Sorry for taking so long to reply, I've been looking at other things and only now coming back to the instrument holders.
Thanks for the info. much appreciated.
