What do you guys recommend a DIY to paint ABS Plastic?

I'm a noob when it comes to this so please don't pun me.

Also I also think that the paint might crack with a certain paint? no?

Please give me your thoughts.

Thanks. :thumb:

easy, if its pure ABS plastic you could pull this off yourself bro. just sand the parts down. primer - i would do two coats actually. then if you go to a decent paint store and have the paint code, you could get it in a spray can - yes most people would frown upon this but alot of DIY's when done with alot of patience and careful dedication and a good amount of being anal; produces a great results. you could opt to have the clear mixed already or not. Hope this helps! Ive done a few pieces for my corolla and some other friends and it's daunting at first but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty fun!!
