Default WRX Side Skirt Strakes

Anyone now where I can get a set of side strakes painted? I figure it would be hard to find a shop if any that would only paint two small pieces. Thanks

You can always hit up Sherwin Williams or NAPA and have them mix a can of single stage spray in your color. They just need the color code. Should be under $20.

Something small like that shouldn't be much of a pain to spray. I did the splitters for my WRX which came out fine. Just add lots of clear and buff it afterwards to make it all nice and glossy (I didn't buff, but should have).

Nice thing is, they're small enough that if you screw up, just sand and respray. Get some decent primer on there first, of course. Ask the paint shop if they recommend a certain adhesion promoter for polyurethane. This is what you usually put on plastic so paint sticks better (I think it replaces the primer, but best to ask someone smarter than me).

If you check with Napa, make sure to ask about the spray can. Lots of the locations will mix paint, but usually just for spray guns. Only some do the pressurized cans.
