RE: [DML] Re: repainting rear sunshade



Here's a tip, if you remove the louvers do it from the hinge mount that 
mounts to the back of the body. You will need to remove the little plastic 
cover that is held on by 3 screws, and then there are 4, 10mm bolts that 
hold the louvers.
Do NOT separate the hinge, you will never get them lined back up again!

Don Stegar sells some great paint, KENT Uralastic Black Rubber Bumper Paint.
http://www.deloreanmotorcenter.com/_a1000051_bumper_black.html
This paint has a nice textured look, you will notice that the fiberglass 
louvers are textured,
I have seen a lot of paint jobs that make them look glossy and the fine 
paint fills
in the little textured spots.
This Kent paint has it's own texture to it that looks natural.
You can't buy it in stores, only independent dealers - like Don.
Another option might be high heat BBQ paint, it has a nice flat look.
You don't want a gloss, it doesn't look quite right.
The goal here is a nice rich black matte.

First clean them really well, let them dry, and then paint them while 
upright.
They will look great afterwards.

You might want to do the decklid while your at it.

If you want a cheap short term answer you can slather some of that
Mother's Black Restore, but it turns them into sticky fly paper.

For the black fiberglass on the pontoon, try some boat polish.
