ya if you have good primer than you don't need to sand anything

btw if you do decide to sand be carefull....i was a little over-zealous with the sanding and now you can see scratches in the housing even after the primer and the paint :rolleyes:

You don't need to sand it in terms of trying to sand through the chrome. Just scuff up the chrome surface and you will be fine. Good luck with it bud.

The only way to see if you can do it is to go ahead and give it a shot. When you fuck up, then you will know that you couldn't do it.

Um when my bud and I did it, we didn't follow the good ole ClubRSX style of Sanding to hell and Primer, just some rubbing alcohol and a mask, takes the clear coat off the chrome and it stuck excellent, But do as you please.. :D
