you have to scuff the shit out of them , im not sure what the coating is on them from the factory , it looks and sands like a gelcoat, but the parts are atype of rubber plastic shit........Originally posted by 6Deuced@Oct 15 2007, 09:36 PM~9010544
those are painted grey from the factory or are they bare colored plastic????? if they are painted you can just scuff and paint like normal, if they are bare plastic, clean thorughly with something like VIM bathroom cleaner, then scuff with GREY scotch brite, clean with wax and grease remover, spray a light coat of plastic parts adhesion promoter, then you can either go striaght in to your basecoat or for optimal coverage and adhesion i spray a coat of sealer then base.
you dont want to be to agressive with plastic parts, trust me. FIRST clean with VIM, once you have rinsed that off, then scuff with waterHOT HOT, and grey scotch brite, if you feel you want a little more use a sanding paste, suitable for blend area prepping.Originally posted by hearse driver@Oct 17 2007, 03:29 PM~9024429

:yes: :thumbsup: rustoleum....masked it all off, scuffed with a brillo pad(scotchbrite) then primed to cover the little defects and then painted :biggrin: if you got the money you can spray some real paint on there to match your ride and clear it, but rustoleum is a clean paint job on a budgetOriginally posted by Lo_N_Lavish@Jul 15 2008, 08:01 AM~11092374
i taped mine off with masking tape and paper and sprayed Rustoleom all purpose spray paint on mine, i did two coats. its been about 6 months and it looks great, no chips or anything. just make sure u keep a equal distance from the trim so ur coats come out even
