marie, how many coats did you put on? also, did you use any special primer or anything to get that paint to stick to the plastic. i've been thinking about spraying my rails and rear bumper plastic pieces to get rid of the last of the gray before i "za-beardify" my hood.

It looked good with just one coat but I did 2 just to be safe. No primer since I used Krlyon Fusion which is made for plastic. I just washed them with a little of the detergent I use on my truck and let dry. The second coat doesn't stick to paint as well as it does plastic so after letting them dry I still was getting some residue on my hands but after installing on the truck I've washed them about every 2 weeks and they look like new still.
