How to take off and paint harnes slot from Reccaro seats.

How to take off and paint harnes slot from Reccaro seats.

1.As the first you must do this when is in the car hot, then plastic pins will not broke.Put your fingers as shown in the picture on both sides of the harness slots and pull slowly in the direction as shown by the arrow.You need to pull with some forces.




2.Two pices of harness slots.




3.Painting plasticsThese proces may vary. I use this proces:


1,First I wash the harnes slots with hot watter,then dry.
2.Then I take sanpaper (800) and light everything with sandpaper under the running water, then dry.
3.I take Plastic Premier spray and made two thin coat.Wait 5-6 hour beetwen coat to dry.
4.Then I smooth it by slightly wet sanding it with 1200-1500 sandpaper ,clean ewrything with watter and dry.
5.Then I take acrylics spray and made three thin coat with silver colour.Wait beetwen coat 24 hours.
Betveen each coat you must wash harnes slot.
Why?
As part of the paint on the road to the housing of the spray dried in the air and fell on
housing as the dust - it is not grabbed by the housing and so the next coat of paint will not be touched in this dust.

4.When you are done with painting,you put back harness slots to the seats. ,


5.And this is the result.Then you deserve one

I've thought about painting mine, along with some other trim, car color rally Red. But cant decide if thats too ricerish or not. It would be descrete and classy, not IN YO FACE.

So the plastic tabs are a little bit more ductile and a little less brittle?

Do it in January in Canada after the car sat overnight outside and I bet they'll all snap right off.

And I guess I don't understand why you chose to quote his entire post, pictures and all, to ask that question.
