    Best paint for rubber, pvc, and plastic.

    Last week I decided to paint some items on my VXR and I chose vht vinyl dye and adhesion promoter. Let me say that first off, this paint works better than any plastic paint I have used. It even stayed on the flexible middle piece after sanding. Even after wet sanding very little came off. If anyone is looking to paint, I would recommend these products. Also I am going to try out that new 3m removable clear coat that you can spray on the ski to help with scratching, then remove it if it gets damaged.

    Its a 3 step process, I used amazon to buy since auto zone doesn't carry the vht vinyl dye just other brands. Use amazon and search for vht prep spray, this is for cleaning. The search for vht adhesion promoter, this is to make the paint stick better, and search for vht vinyl dye, I used 3 to four coats and followed directions on the cans to a T. Each can is about 9 bucks a piece and I'm an amazon prime so I got 2 days free shipping. I can try to get links for you soon.

    Came out really good. My krylon spray job is holding up well on the front vent so far.

    Will do. You did the rear grab bar? Now I might have too. If it's lasted that long might be worth my time.
