Cheaper to just vinyl wrap it flat black then. Although if this was my car I'd get it repainted red.

Do you plan to repaint the whole car black? If so and your really sick of looking at your spoiler then you could paint it flat black if you wanted I guess. I think you should just have it re-painted red when you can.

Honestly? Sand that bish down, primer and flat black it. It will be cheap and comes out nicely if you google how to do it correctly.

i think flat black would look good for the time being. wouldn't stand out to much and still cosmetically functional.

Fa Sho! Lol but seriously, right now, it looks bad. If you repaint it red it will make the rest of the car look bad. If you paint it black it will look like an after thought. Your call. Youre in the same place as me. $hitty red paint and no money to do it up. I feel your pain. I would 86 that bad boy until you do the rest of the car.

Re: should i paint my spoiler? img attached.. help!

Like I said before. Just vinyl it flat black. Once you spray bomb it. The body shop who has to sand down all that black is going to charge you more for it. It's not that hard. You could order a sheet of Oracal or 3M.

We had our friends JDM front end teg spray bombed matte black and the body shop wanted $300 for it to be sanded down and primer. I guess it really depends on the body shop

Re: should i paint my spoiler? img attached.. help!

ok sorry i took so long to update pictures but i decided to paint the rims too.. overall i think i think it looks ok.. the rims look better i should have used the same paint i used for the rims on the spoiler, the rims have like a light metallic semi gloss and the spoiler its just flat. imma ride around in it, hopefully the spoiler grows on me, cuz im not really liking it like that.

hmm, semi gloss i guess would look a tad bit better... what i've read that some people have done is that they sprayed plastidip, and then put some gloss clearcoat on top of it.

hell yeah i'm going too! hopefully/probably this saturday. if not, then friday.
&yes, soooo many hot chicks. I'll have to wear my sunglasses because i'm bringing my girlfriend heh jk

I like the contrast with your lip, spoiler and rim black. Creative and personal style. I'd do the roof next ;)
