    Theres a Plastic primer applied to plastic to make the paint stick.

    Besides the right products, you still have to prep the plastic for anything to want to stick to it. The best paint jobs are the ones with the most attention given towards the very first couple of steps. The meat-n-potatoes is all in the foundation.

    And cheap as they are, rubbing alcohol and Comet cleanser (with scotch pads) work wonders on prepping raw plastic!!
