Painting Over Plastic - Q About Adhesion Promoter

Recommended Posts

Need some advice. I'm painting an early 1990's Yamaha motorcycle with plastic fairing and fenders (not fiberglass - they are thick and bendable). It's almost the same stuff you see in 1980's GM bumper fillers/extensions

 

I will prime and then paint using a urethane single-stage color.

 

I know I need to use an adhesion promoter. Questions:

  1. Do I use the adhesion promoter under the primer, or after the primer and before the color coat?
  2. Is there a particular brand of adhesion promoter that works best? I've heard that DupliColor is better than Bulldog. 
  3. Any other advice?

 

Thanks in advance.

I received the needed info. Clean the plastic surface thoroughly and apply 2 coats of adhesion promoter. You can then apply an epoxy primer or 2K primer surfacer.
