    Plastic painting

    I've been following the guide http://www.astraownersclub.com/docum...nt-plastic.pdf for plastic painting, I'm the stage where the plastic keeps bubbling..
    I am doing his suggestion and Wet and drying with 800 and re appling the primer but it's getting tedious as it's still bubbling and will run out of primer soon anyone else got any suggestions please
    Thanks[IMG]file:///C:/Users/NEWUSE%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot-2.jpg[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/Users/NEWUSE%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/IMG]

    Try some sand paper to take the top layer off properly or just apply a bit more elbow grease when using the wet and dry.

    When I painted my centre console I rubbed it down loads before I started with the primer.

    if your paintin the center console they have a vynal layer on you need to rub this off before priming. most interior plastics are the same.

    Yeh I know what your saying,

    Been at it for ages, wet and drying that is, it's all really smooth, don't really want to go down too much.

    Thanks for quick replies
