Hey guys I’m just after any opinions about what colour I should respray my wiper arms, front and back. I’m not sure if a gloss black with clear is going to be to out there and look silly compared with spraying them with a flat black and clear? I’ll put a picture of my car so you can decide from that. TIA to all that comment

Thanks mate that’s exactly what I thought. Do you think it’ll be ok with the clear over it or that’ll just give it a shine in certain lights? I only thought about the clear just as a sort of protection coat!

Yes I reckon you already get enough reflections on the windscreen without possibly adding to them. Just give them another coat of the flat black when the time comes.

I'd be running a satin factory black myself. If you've got some other stuff that needs doing same colour just buy some direct 2k in a can. Also from memory they're aluminium if break through the paint needs an etch primer.

I’d go a dark satin black.

I’d be more concerned with how the doors look than I would be on what finish of black to use. That’s some nasty damage.

Yep sorry, satin black.
