    There were a couple people that have done it and it looks good, but the texture of the lower piece will make it look somewhat mismatched because the finishes will be off a bit. That is a real problem if you keep/redo the stock red which is multi stage paintwork. It will never match at different angles.

    it's a good thing you mentioned that or i might have just roughed it up and sprayed. with a little patience i think we may be able to get it smooth. do you know what kind of plastic it is made out of? i'm going to go look that up. my guess is abs?
