Depens how good you are at spraying.

Its just the same as spraying anything else really, Just take your time between coats of paint.

ah painting hmm, i have lots of painting to do!

well your handles will have grain on them, not chic feed, you'll need some plastic filling primer, get the grain out. Then prime it paint it with a few layers polish that up and then laquer then polish that up job done.

ps: leave to dry between coats you won't get orange peel then and by your paint from vauxhall not halfords crap wrong colour. It will be a near perfect match if you car hasn't faded

you might have been lucky but i'd go straight to the manufacturer for paint for a good match. I've tried halfords paint but got a crap match compared to manufacturers paint which was dead on
