it works pretty good if you are doing a smaller job like the hard hat, just dont go trying to redo some wheels and expect them to look like a real chrome job where they dip em....lol...

Stuff works allright for small shit like homie above me said. You need to base it in black first if I remember right. Do a test piece first before you shoot your whole hard hard. Some plastics the solvent in the paint will soften up and it never cures right. Also, dont expect it to hold up very long...after a bit of handling it turns yellow and shit.

Nope. That's one of the plastics that the solvents eat. I was gonna have a bunch of stuff done for one of my model cars...I had dude shooting the stuff and it turned it into wet noodles.

It was for this car too...had to get another kit to replace the parts. :uh:

I would say yes, the stuff works good on harder plastics. Like always though, I reccommend doing a test piece. ;)

True dat, I was gonna paint my welding helmet, and my instructor told me that I have to be extremely careful about what paint I use because solvent based paints will destroy it.

I think if you spray a gloss black basecoat, using some enamel or something. then it will do alright. I've sprayed all kinds of laquers and urethanes onto models before. You just need to seal the plastic before you do it. Either with primer or some other basecoat. (in this case, gloss black)

I'm not sure what their black base is....laquer probably, which will eat the plastic and make it textured. Throw some primer down first and it should be fine though.

i dont know what that killer stuff is....is it laquer? Either way, just need to prime and prep your plastic properly and you should be fine.
