Hi All,

As per the title what is the best paint for restoration of the wiper arms for a ur quattro please, RR? Will the paint be suitable for the spoiler on the drivers arm as well?

Default I've used this:

It has a similar satin sheen.

Your common or garden "satin black" from Halfords should do the trick.

Assume this isn't the case but did anyone prime the arms before satin black? Or just good clean up and straight on with the black for a decent finish?

Noted some on eBay last week for 80quid!!
