Any there any problems getting paint to adhere to bare metal foil?Gene,
When I used this approach for patch panels on an X29, I did not have any problem, although I also grit blasted the surface. I did however have a problem with coverage as the silver metal foil showed through as a different color then where the red plastic body was painted. On subsequent cars done this way, I have used a base color of silver to even the car out, followed by painting the body color.
