A Couple Paint Questions

I know for plastics Krylon Fusion works best but If I wanted to Paint something Say another color than Krylon has like YN(Metallic Silver) What kind of primer would work best for preparing the plastic for paint made for exterior metal?

And What company makes the Best OE Match Paint in the YN color code. Is dupli-color best?

if you stop by your local body shop supplier they will be able to tell you what you need to do...and there is a store near me that has OE color in spray bombs that matches real nice

id just use adhesion promoter as the "plastic primer". ive never used duplicolors oem paint line beyond the little brush/pens they sell. you can try to find your color at the auto store or order cans from here

Automotive Spray Paint custom matched
