tips on painting engine plastics
I want to paint my engine plastics right the first time. I read the install section article on it. But i heard of people priming theres and other stuff to make them come out real nice. Ive seen some members and there paint jobs look "mehish." How exactly do you primer it and what type of paint should I use? thanx

like i think this guys used another process

he said he did this 'Painting it was a pain in the butt cause I used a metallic finish which meant that I had to paint with a metallic primer first then I had to spray the blue metallic finish, it looks great in person, the pics don't do it much justice."

i tried asking homeboy 4 help but never replied. you think that paint will handle heat
