Re: Opinions on painting plastic body mouldings plz

on our r/c helicopters the canopy is 90% of the time plastic we use plasticoat spray tins you can bend the canopy and the paint bends with it
in fact after many hrs of in and out of the car you do get chips then its alot of work to rub it all down and repaint
some plastics have oil in them before we spray it has to be wiped with a spirit to remove the oil
at the end of the day paint and plastic dont mix over a long time
