    Aug 8, 2009, 4:34 PM - Paint Help Needed #1

    I am converting a Rockgarden Mtn Bike Armor jacket into Boba Fett gear.

    I tried normal spraypaint but it scratches off easily.

    What brand is a good primer/ paint to use on plastic and nylon fabric that will stick well?

    To paint plastic, the traditional way is the best. Lightly sand with some 220grit all over the piece to be painted, then prime & paint. I've always used Rustoleum products with absolute stellar results everytime. Their industrial line is a gem to work with....fast drying and professional results.
