Heater Duct Work

I'm building a 1981 CJ7. My duct work is in great shape, but it is faded.
I was wondering if just scuffing with scotchbrite and painting black is what most of you do. Are there any tips or paint that adheres better to the plastic?

You can buy paint made for plastic. Did mine and it has help up for 3 years without peeling.

When you are in the duct work make sure all the cables are opening right and lube them. Its a pain to open it back up.

Look for a product called "Bulldog" It is a clear primer in a rattle can that will make paint stick to anything. Aluminum, plastic etc. Then paint over it with whatever you want.
