Default Looking at painting Chin Spoiler

I have read as much as I can find on painting the chin spoiler sides (not the plastic center), but no-one lists exactly what to do. Since I don't want to mess it up, I figured I would ask to make sure. Not being a painter, I am not sure on the process'. I will be doing this all with rattle cans, as I don't have access to any painting booths. I have 2 cans of Polaris Pearl White already.

Step 1 - getting them ready for paint. I read somewhere, I believe it was from PaiN back in 2015, that he used 800g wet/dry sp. Do you have to sand it smooth? Then, I am assuming you have to clean it before you prime it, what would you clean it with?

Step 2 - Prime. Once again, going by Pain, he just used a self etching primer. How many coats?

Step 3 - Paint. How many coats? How long do they have to dry in between coats? Ideal temperature for painting?

Step 3 - Gloss. Pretty much same questions as step 3.

Final - Should there be any 3m paint protection film put on? If so, is that something that can be put on the entire spoiler?

Thanks in advance to anyone that is willing to answer these questions OR point me to a thread that has the answers. Like I said, I have done some searching on this site and others for the info that I have already got.

It is still cold in Northern MN, so it won't be for a month or so until temps warm up and I can do this. I am just trying to save money vs. sending them to Goody to paint, but if there is more involved than I am able to do, I will be sending them to Goody.

What kind of finish do you want? The chin spoiler is textured plastic, not metal. You can make it VERY easy on yourself by skipping any sanding/priming for prep. Use a can of Krylon Fusion spray paint for plastic as the base/primer coat as it will bond much better to the plastic than automotive paint and preserve the textured finish. Then paint, then clear. 3 coats of each. No wetsanding on a textured finish.

Sorry Spawn, but I meant the chin spoiler sides, not the center plastic piece. I edited the wording in the post to reflect that.

Right, you mean the "side fairings". Even more texture on those, but they are at least metal. I just did mine with Plasti-Dip and a Satin Clearcoat.

@FuzzyKing Over the winter I had the chin-fairings professionally returned to matte black and properly clear coated.
The rattle can of Polaris Sunset Red is not an exact match to the Sunset Red on my bike that was one issue. Between it not being "real" body paint and the commercial rattle can of clear coat I used, it didn't take long for the chins to get eaten up which was the major reason I had them re-done. They looked like crap in no time, some how a large gouge was even taken out behind the rear brake reservoir..
Anyway, I'm not trying to take you out of painting them but don't waste your time doing it half-assed. Make sure you start with the correct paint and clear coat. Good luck
Here's the latest pic I have with the matte chins and side covers

Thanks Pain. I have the Pearl White from Polaris, p352, which should be the same (except for the sun fading). And I don't want to just do it to do it, I would want it to be done well, that is why I am looking for input. So I appreciate yours and that makes me lean a little bit toward having Goody do it, but I would need to save up for that.

who ever you buy paint from look on there web site for tips and how to paint.
As for the primer make sure you get the right primer for the type of paint you have

Been involved with guys who paint. You will never be able to get a strong enough clear in a rattle can. You need a goo 2 stage urithane clear over it and down there it need to be pretty thick and really needs to be baked on for the hardness.

NAPA has 2 stage urethane clear. If not in your store they will order it for you. I have used it and it works really good
