    Hey, I was just wondering how do u paint plastic?

    Cant find krylon paint for plastic around here. For some reason the local Lowes and Home Depot doesn't have them. Probably some kind of contract with Rustoleum. I even tried the small hardware stores n nothing.

    Can't I just primer them and paint them?

    I used a $1.00 water pistol for my ESB rifle.I used krylon primer with a flat black final coat and it didnt have any problems sticking to the plastic.I did claen it off with soap and water before the primer though.

    I used spray on truck bed liner from the local auto store. it was by duplicolor. It stuck to plastic great, and has a rough finish to it.
