I was speaking to this guy down the garage where my bumper is being sprayed, i asked him about spraying my arches but he said that because of the material its made out of it will start to flake 6 months down the line...?
Has any experienced this?
Are there any replacement arches made of different material that can be used instead?

I hope he does know how to do it... they do all the repairs and spraying for my local vauxhall garage so i you would expect them to know..

Im pretty sure its that easy however when this post came up before someone said its best not to do it yourself cos it'll be a dogs dinner 'cos you need your own heated spray shop or whatever, cant find the post though...

if the surface is keyd and primed properly then it shouldnt happen! when u take it to the bodyshop make sure u say u want the texture removing as this will give you the factory finish look.
