If you are refering to the Fusion paint in a can, I have used it with excellent results. I sprayed my mud guards semi-gloss black, they where gray plastic.Since then I've had no peeling, cracking or chiping. I even used a pressure washer to them and no problems. The only time the paint came off was when I went over a curb and the splash guard hit it and guaged the plastic. I think it is so good that I painted my front grill. The key is to read and fallow the directions on the can.
Interesting. I want to purchase a Harley Billet Grill for my truck but they only come in chrome. I have been looking for a good quality paint in which I could paint it black without worries of it peeling etc. I realize the thread was originally about plastic but would this paint also work with billet? How about painting over the chrome stock front/rear bumpers? My goal is for an all black truck. Thought?
griz...I just bought and installed the Harley grill, and it's not true billet aluminum. It's just that chrome-like finish over plastic. I'm with you on the idea...I'm also thinking of making the grill black but can't decide how to do it in a way that it'll last.

I used the fusion on the radiator wings onan old CR125 Honda MX bike I got. They were a faded "Tahatian Red". Painted them a medium blue. No cracking or peeling, inspite of the flexing and vibration they get. However, bangin them through the bushes has resulted in a few scratches with some very minor peeling and the rad plastic showing thru. Considering the abuse they get, I'd say it has held up and performed very well. Granted it ain't the original impregnated color durability, but was one heck of a lot cheaper than buying new parts simply because the old ones had faded.
Has anyone tried the new Krylon spray paint for plastic? I would like to refinish the door panels on my 1983 Ford F150 by painting them if the plastic works well. Thanks in advance.
I built some kiosks out of melamine and was having a bad time getting paint to stick. A guy at my local hardware told me to try the Krylon Fusion, made for painting plastic. It was the only thing that sticks to that plastic coating. I did some tests, and it sticks whether I sanded first or not. The only problem is there is a very limited color selection.
