 Thanks for all the advice folks.
 Looks like there are several ways to successfully skin this cat.  :084:
 I'm favouring the scuff up and top coat route.
 The plasti-cote method is interesting if I wanted to go back to stock but I'm certain I won't tire of black.
 Thanks again folks.  :821:

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

If i give this a go I'll probably source some second hand covers off ebay and use them for painting

Here's some pics of my painted frame plastics and heel guards using plasti-dip 'matt black' paint. Looks really great IMO. So easy to apply and of course remove too if you don't like it etc...
