How do I paint the replacement wing mirror cover on my car?

My driver's wing mirror was hit and I ordered a new one. The cover comes primed and I bought the appropriate colour spray from Halfords. Is it okay to spray just using this as it already comes primed? If so, do I do need to use a clear coat?

It should be fine. Halfords spray cans are very user-friendly (once you get used to them). Make sure you shake it properly first. Don't try to colour coat all in one go. Build up the colour slowly, giving it time to cure between sprays. Then, give it an hour or so and coat with clearcoat.
