Sorry to quote myself, but I was just wondering. Got the same paint in blue today, btw. Thanks for the inspiration.

Nope,didn't use any primer.

All I did was wipe the surface with a damp cloth and dry it off, and then sprayed the ground coat, colour and clear.

I hope if you bought the Metalcast paint that you also bought the "Ground Coat", or else it isn't going to turn out right.

I have the groundcoat as well! Do I need the CP199 Adhesion spray? If so, what order do they go on?

IE: Primer, CP199, Metalcast? Or CP199 first?

You could use the adhesion stuff, but I didn't.

If you do use it, spray the adhesion promotor on the plastic, then spray the ground coat, then the colour and then clearcoat.

Anyone painted the interior stuff white? If I did white I would go for a real nice "ice" white or whatever the name is, sorta like what is on the newer Porsche cars, that white is addicting. Didn't think I'd ever say that for a white car.

Sorry, I'm a noob at painting. Once I have the ground coat and a few coats of the Metalcast I should spray clearcoat too?

Spray the adhesion promoter onto the clean bare plastic. Then do primer if you wish. Do a nice, even base of the grey ground coat. Make sure it's even, otherwise your colour will come out blotchy because the colour is transparent paint. When it's painted and dried, spray a couple coats of clear on it. Be really light with the clear coat, it will run easily.
