Cool painting question

I'm considering painting the lower splash guards, and the back of the windscreen.
Was planning on using Krylon spray paint.
has anyone else tried this?
Any advice pro or con?

Thanks...

I did this, i used the plastic fusioin krlyon paint, it worked great.
for the windscreen, paint the inside of it oso that way the paint wont chip away once you start hitting bugs at high speeds!

Awesome!
I picked up the Fusion this afternoon.
Gonna have at it tomorrow.

Was thinking of using pvc cleaner to prep it.
I'll test it on a small area first.

Used it for my fenda extenda prep before gluing,
worked well on that.

Thank you, Brad.

PVC cleanner will proabably work well... but,
I just washed them with water, dried em, and prepped with rubbing alcohol. it worked well enough, and cost less.

i had my lowers painted by body shop with the bar ends. they buffed them up and also clear coated after was very well done for around 150 cdn. it took away alittle of the roughness on the plastic but is guaranteed from them for quality. not much more than krylon for pro look.
