Ordered some from Amazon. What exactly needs to be done to prep it correctly?
Just make sure everything is clean. They sell plastic prep wipes & things at the autoparts stores....but I've not used those.
I was instructed by the local paint place not to use stuff like MEK for cleaning on the plastic b/c it is too harsh.
I have used alcohol on some of the parts, but not too much of it.
I usually rinse, scrub with a hard brush & dish soap, rinse, scrub with dish soap, rinse, scuff with fairly fine sandpaper (nothing too aggressive), rinse, scrub/soap, rinse, air dry & wipe down with microfiber.
Then I use the adhesion promoter (usually 2 coats), wait 15min, then a very light coat of color, wait 5-10min, then 3 coats of color (last 2 pretty thick) with about 10 min between coats, then 1-2 coats of clear....I recently tried a rustoleum matte clear over SEM satin black & I love the finish, but can't say how it holds up yet.
My photobucket isn't loading right now, but you can check out my "build" thread....& an old thread I have titled "painted my console" or something
