Painting plastic inner grill
 
What method do you all use when painting something like a plastic grill that is going to be exposed to weather and bugs.

Thanks

What kind of plastic? Is it an original grille and what is it out of?

If it is part of a bumper assembly etc.. I use adhesion promoter like Bulldog, and paint it like I would the bumper.. bulldog... epoxy... base... clear


Note: Not all plastic requires adhesion promoter but I just use it on everything and dont worry about it.. It does not hurt to use it

I too have had excellent results with the Bulldog Promoter.
What I like best is it is available in a spray can and a little goes a long way.

a single coat seems to work better than the recomended 2 in this reporters opinion :rolleyes:

The grille he is painting is ABS so no need for promoter on this one.
