Dupli-Color paints
Posted by hot ford coupe on Tuesday, February 3, 2004 9:58 AM
Help! ! ! I see so many different types of paint on the forum I'm getting a bit confused. I see that Wal-mart caries Duplicolor paint in rattle cans. Is this stuff the same as you guys have been using? Can I use this stuff without destroying the finish on the plastic? What primer should I use so I can seal up the plastic so it won't craze under the laquer? Please give me a short tutorial. Thanks so much for the help. I'm beginning not to like enamel paint.

Yup, thats what I've uses, and seems to work fine. I also use there primer. Just remember that a dark primer will be hard to cover with a light paint. They make usually a white, gray, and red primers.

Be sure to wash the body (parts) in dish soap before painting. Approve

Be sure to use a resperator too, any paint is bad to inhale.Dead

Also, Plastic-Coat paint works good, and Krylon I've used them all without any problems......so far......Thumbs UpWhistling

Ford coupe, Yes this is the stuff. As for primer use dupli-color primer as well. This will seal the plistic. Lay down 2-3 light coats sand, then lay down 2-3 more coats. That should your plastic. I have been using dupli-color for years with no adverse affects to plastic. I think the key is sticking with thier products from start to finish.
