Well, there are so many owners that have been plastidipping their Spyders! So I wanted to try it out!

I blacked out the windshield trim to match the black hardtop. I am still unsure if I like it! Let the pictures speak for themselves......

To me, it smooths out the hardtop lines a lot by causing less contrast between it and the A-pillars/windshield trim. Nice work. Will have to look into Plastidip more thoroughly; seems like a bunch of people are getting great results with it so far.

I know. I get lots of "Hey! Nice Porche" and I don't really get it coz I know which Porche they are referring to but I honestly think the Spyder is much better looking than that and shouldn't be confused.

I'd say paint the eyelids to match your car, black windshield trim with black hardtop is the only way to go!
I would paint the eyelids red but I still haven't found a local shop that could mix 3po for me in a can. I don't want to pay lots of money for a body shop to do it!

Something so small could be painted with a prival sprayer and you can use the auto paint in it. It works great for small items like that. For the clear I would use a spraymax 2 part can and most auto body shops will carry it. You can look it up online to learn more about them. Hope that helps you out.
