Got this Rustoleum Paint for Plastic at Walmart for $6.oo a cab in the auto-body section. I had 2 windshield pillars that needed to be painted.
One side looked like a B+ ......... and the other side looked worn... and Scaly.... (D-).
1- Wash interior plastic pieces in your bathtub..... any liquid soap... and a common soft scrub-sponge. (I used light pressure --
even on the bad, scaly spots.)
2. Dry with a fluffy towel --show it you care.
3. Use a piece of wire (coat hanger or?) to hold plastic piece -- so you can paint all the angles -- and not your hands.
4. Apply 2 light-medium coats a few minutes apart....easy...just like normal paint. This will give you great coverage & excellent results.
5. Hang up to dry. Dries to touch in 30 min..... to handle in 24 hours..... and fully dry in 5 days.
THIS STUFF WORKS GREAT.... GREAT COVERAGE... [b]BOTH PIECES LOOK BRAND NEW!! Goes on kind of thick. This is great news if you want great looking gloss black interior plastic pieces.[/b]
Question... does anyone know if I can paint these pieces flat black enamel in a spray can? (Flat black will match the interior better.)
Seems like it would just take 2 coats. Thanks
