do a search on flashing, its the only way to prepare the surface so it will take paint. i used regular water based airbrush paint called createx. check my gallery and look at the crash pics, it holds up really well.

just sanded mine with 400, used bulldog adhesion promoter, painted with spray paint, had a buddy in an autoshop clear coat. Held up for over a gallon so far with no signs of wear at all.

Flashing
(j5coat) is right. I also flashed the plastic, used adhesion promoter, rubber bumper primer and used water based createx airbrush paint. Then two coats of DuPont clearcoat.

I experimented with a scrap piece of the canopy. I did everything as above, with exception of one half of scrap piece was not flashed. The paint came off on the half not flashed as I flexed the piece back and forth.

Still just Hoverin.....................
