    honestly, if you have to ask.. you might just want to bring it to a professional. DIY is great for small stuff but the STi spoiler is pretty large & if not done properly can look really horrible.


    if you still want to give it a shot,
    sandpaper
    primer
    paint
    clearcoat

    Have you thought about selling the spoiler and doing a trunk swap? It's free.

    paint work is expensive.. fact of life. If you wanted to do it right spraypaint shouldn't even have entered the equation. Wander into a couple body shops and get estimates. Thats the only way to get a good grasp of what it will cost you to have it look correct and match like it belongs there.

    I had a red sti wing to paint midnight pearl blue.
    I decided to do it myself so i went to harbor frieght and bought an air compressor and spray gun for around $100 (compressor on sale)
    Got alot of sandpaper from lowes all the way through the grains to smooth out the fresh paint as well.
    And i got the paint from sherwin williams auto paint for about $40 and did it myself. I did practice alot before the actual painting.
    Now i know there are some spots on it that could use some touch up and it isnt perfect but if you arent aware of it, you wouldnt really know the difference.
    But thats just how i did it and felt comfortable with it.

    All you need to do is get the paint color code..
    If its the stock color then all you need to do is call a dealer and give them your vin number and they will tell you what color code it is.
    Then most places can just mix that paint up for you.. its not like a mass produced color so it may be a bit more expensive but hey.. cheaper than someone else doing it
