I bought some of this paint and was wondering when i use it on my dash should i just wash it down and spray it like the can says or should i get some adhesion promoter first? I sprayed it on my glove box door already and it looks sweet, just wondering how it will hold up, thanks

i used the automotive paint but i also sanded down my bezel smooth. I've heard good about the interior stuff but prefer the smooth look.

i used Krylon fusion paint. its supposed to chemically bond to all sorts of plastic. i painted my cars door pannels with it by just washing it real good with dish soap and rinsed to get it all off. i used a somewhat stiff scrub brush in the groves to get all dirt off. i must say theyve held up suprisingly well.

well i haven't had problems on my first gen. I did the door pillars and glove box. I scrubbed it with a toothbrush and soap and water. Then after it was dry ran over it with some wax and grease remover i use for the exterior paint on the car. No fish eying or anything.
