I was smoking a butt, staring at my blue Stryker, and I love black, dislike chrome (although it is growing on me)

Was eyeing the engine plastic, and wondered what it would look like all blacked out...

Anybody!?

Yeah. Been there, loved that!
Sand with 600 grit, prime with plastic primer and pick ur poison as far as black paint..
I chose wrinkle black. Its been on since spring and no problems yet.
Pm me for more details or check out my thread "my version of painted plastic"

I dont have the balls to paint it!

I had some scratches on my old R6, so I scuffed it, hit it with primer, and painted it with Krylon Fusion for plastic....yeah It looked like **** after a couple months!

If anything, I would take them off, and have bro in law spray them (he is auto body guy)

ANy pics or links?? I will search for your thread in the morning, its ZzZzZ time

Ive been told to use the self etching primer.... with this stuff you dont have to sand as much...
Hmmm.. I'd be willing to try that. Most of us used plastic adhering primer and regular paint..

Thank you. I'm very happy with it and proud. I really encourage you to try. I never painted anything before this. I tried this plastic stuff and now I am hooked. I am contemplating painting my own tins this winter with a gun...
I have a few more tricks to pull on my last side cover. I'll grab a six pack and get to work later this week. I feel motivated!
