what i did was sanded all the plastic with 220 grit to smooth it down. then with 320. make sure you wet sand everything so you dont waste paper. then spray some adhesion promoter on it. you need to do this because it is plastic. with that on put a few layers of primer on and then wet sand the primer with 600 grit. i mixed the paint at school. it was all dupont paint. code 6566 i belive. you can find your code is the trunk next to your battery.

Here is a shot of the whole side of the car

Hey man looks great, I have the same color RL and I also painted all my extra ext parts too, I used DuPont paint and clear. Did the process kinda like you used, Did you bake your parts after you painted them. Also do you do autobody also?:)

I might give this a shot, I have a paint gun, decent one, that I got for Christmas about 2 years ago. I'd like to give it a try...

Is that a paint that will dry normal, does it have the same finish and such as the stock paint job? You basically just using the same paint that the factory would be using?

More and more reasons we got the car so cheap... besides, I like the black, I just think that the red MIGHT look better. Have to photoshop it myself and see...
