see that white cover. That is what I want to spray ( now so ugly because it start to crack) . The problem is that I always wax that area and the paint will sure peal off. What spray can i use to spray it? Need any undercoating? or must cure the plastic first.

this fender sure will crack after a period....if u wan it as beauty as always, just go advertisement shop to tint it with the colored tint...black, white,red, blue......many color can let u choose....i think it will cost below 50 plus installation..
but it only tint the front of the plastic..the inner they wont do for u i think...

even u spray it and repair it to ori condition, it will still crack after a period..due to sunshine and rain...

well.. to spray on palstics.. it is not as simple as u think... if originally it got paint on it.. then u can just use sand paper to sand it a bit then can spray already...

if onli plastic... i believe there is a primer for plastic need to be applied 1st b4 u do the painting job...

well.. u can try de Krylon paints for plastics.... from ACE hardware which costs bout rm31 a can... or just change de plastic cover... motor shop will have them.. save all ur hassle... i heard from a fren. whole motorbike change new covers is less than rm100... so i think it wun be so expensive to change de plastic.... :)

actually i'm trying to avoid changing the cover :) . yes it cost less than rm100.

maybe try to look for primer for plastic or look for krylon.

heard from the tauke at the motor shop there is a solution use by car painter to cure the plastic so the paint will stick. Any idea what it is?

i think dat will be de primer for plastic... not just any primer... according to my dad.. there are many types of paint primer.. some for metal.. some for plastic(got few types of plastic primer i think)..

to me.. just get krylon lar... de spray can there state no need primer at all.. just spray on de plastic... it will bond to plastic...
