Painting ABS Plastics
I've managed to get some alloys for the Sportster build - some original BMW fittment BBS cross spokes. They're a bit ratty looking at the moment, but they're going to get a visit to Lap-Tab for a strip and powdercoat. The problem is, the centre caps that cover the wheel nuts is a metal / plastic sub assembly. The metal shouldn't be an issue - that'll get powder coated the same colour as the wheel - but the cental plastic hexagonal 'nut' won't take a powder coat finish...
So I need to know how you go about painting ABS plastics. Is it just like painting metals? Rub down, clean, prime and paint? If so, what sort of primer?
Let me know.
