August 11, 2009You can use Krylon Fusion, its ment for plastic. You do not have to sand or prime at all. On my old truck i used the spray bedliner and it looked Really sick. If it were up to me I'd say bedliner. You dont need to sand or prime either.
August 11, 2009theres actually a couple of steps to take first when painting plastic. buy automotive grade like touch up paint, first clean it real good you have to remove all road grime and grease. then you want to use an "ADHESIVE PROMOTER" once its dry you can spray it with the paint and not worry about it chipping off in the first wash. good luck.
August 12, 2009All that or you can do it this way: rub it with red scotch brite, clean it, use dupont etch-primer (found at local parts stores) sand it smooth, and paint then clear it.
"If you fail the first time, don`t quit, keep trying until you can do it perfectly."
August 12, 2009ok with all this im really not sure which way to go lol might just combine them and see what happens
