Not bad for an absolute beginner, I'd say. The dealership wanted $300 USD for the original Italian covers, so considering I paid less than $30 in spray cans, I can't complain!

Nice job!

Definitey going to add some colour to mine also, though the replacement covers seem pretty cheap off eBay.

How durable is the finish?
That's a good question. I used Rustoleum spray paint on the green / yellow one and a local brand on the red / white / green one. Rustoleum looks a bit better.

Both of them have:

2 light primer coats / 2 light color coats / 4 light clear coats (I sanded the red / white / green between coats, it looks a bit better).


I expect the Rustoleum one to last a bit longer, the paint just looks a lot thicker than the other one. If I hadn't dropped the key, it'd still look perfect. Then again, I'm pretty easy on keys - I carry them in my pocket most of the time and hang them when I get home - how much damage can they get?
