What the fuck lol Also "bass coat" 💀


manuel__transmission

Need to go back and add a treble coat.


ZookeepergameEvery93

Did you paint it attached to the car?


No_Rich_6105

No I removed it and put it back in 48 hours later but you have to put a small bit of force to put it back in and because the paint was only 95% dry there’s fingerprints


ZookeepergameEvery93

I would remove it once gain and lightly sand the flat edges with wet 600 to flatten it back out. Should still be wet enough that it’ll still adhere to the rest of the paint. Make sure and get your angles on the inside and cover up that primer


No_Rich_6105

Should I sand lightly and then put a light coat of white primer on and then base coat or just sand and then paint


ZookeepergameEvery93

I would sand and just use the paint


tjboylan20

If you paint over existing paint you don’t need primer, since it already has primer. Make sure to use multiple coats to make sure that the color doesn’t bleed through. Sand it down past the top coat with 300-600 for best adhesion

Nah dude. Keep it. It looks tough sister

You can see where it’s chipping already from you trying to use the vent as a vent and adjust it. This is not going to turn out well after more than a week of being in the car, man. You need to get a new, stock one and leave it alone.


weedpal

Just stop please.


imnota_

Put it in the trash, go to a junkyard, get a new vent, leave it stock.


Anythingtodie

That vent is going to be a nightmare to close and open


stevesteve135

There’s a very specific reason that an auto manufacturer has never ever painted vents. The paint is going to jam up all the bits that move and it’s going to get scraped off.


wpen

Why? How is that even cool?


MadIllWOLF

Depends on the paint you used. It may have instructions for removal on the paint you used. If not, use solvents in a degree of less potent to just using paint remover. My concern is painter remover may eat the plastic.


HDauthentic

I guarantee lacquer thinner would melt that thing like a marshmallow


yardie117

Lacquer could probably melt an entire Kia Soul
