Default Painted my 2010 Yamaha Drive top today

Read and read and read till my eyes bled, and finally landed on a strategy for painting my plastic top. Washed with Dawn and hot water, dried overnight then red Scotch Brite both sides inside and out. Done right, it is a time conning job for sure. Washed with Dawn and hot water again and dried overnight.

Today, used duplicolor prep spray do clean and remove any remaining oil/wax if any. Then sprayed the whole piece with Duplicolor adhesion promoter and immediately laid down first coat of Krylon Fusion Satin black. Three more coats an done. I used 5 cans total of the paint. More than I thought I would need but it went on very nicely. So $15 in plastic and about $60 in paint and prep my top turned out better than expected. Now, on to the longevity test?????? I'll report back.

Thanks - I used the garage door rails top and sides and taped all sides to the plastic on the floor. Three coats and not one spec of overspray. Vented the fumes between coats then turned on an infrared heater to bring the temp back to 60.

Looks great. How many cans of adhesion promoter did you use?

Just one can. I talked to some that applied it to heavy and advised me to lighten up a bit. It flashed super quick and the paint laid on it really nice. The satin finish fusion was just the ticked. A perfect match to the gutter dow spouts. It is day two and hardening nicely so I am holding out hope this was the way to go.
