    should be okay if you sand it with 200 or 400 grit before you primer it, be it metal or plastic. i have a plastic trim and it stuck fine, i don't know if you have metal trim, but it should work the same.

    as scottfx said. If you are using the vinyl paint, sand the item first. Use 600 or 800 wet and dry with water. Give it all a light sand. Then clean it with wax and grease remover to get rid of any crap on the item so the paint can adhere. Also paint in very light coats. REMEMBER surface prep is the key
    It take longer, but it won't come off. I have just finished painting my radio surround. No photos yet put I will post them if you want when it's completely finished.
    I believe the duplicolor now has a vinyl primer that you can now use any of their normal car colours over the top.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    also don't waste your time using anything above 600 grit unless you are going for an automotive finish, and still you'd only be using those on your top coats, not your primer. I would take sickvette's suggestion and use the epoxy high fill primer for best results. Lastly let the paint cure for a day or two before you install it, especially if you use a vinyl paint. oh...and lastly (again) make sure your surface is clean, i use mineral spirits and don't touch the piece with your bare hand after you clean it. use some latex gloves, (you know like the kind that you use on friday nights with the boys j/k) while painting and handling the piece....

    this doesn't apply to you but for those going for the automotive finish, when you wetsand, make sure to use a drop or two of dish soap in the water that you're using to dip the sandpaper in.

    I visited Kragen today. I found a lot of paint that said for use on trim, but none was specified as "trim paint"
    Is that the same thing

    Also which primer is best out of these? http://www.duplicolor.com/products/primer.html

    I picked mine up at discount auto parts

    comes in a bunch of colors, I also used the duplicolor approved primer, because it will lift normal primers

    but it took about a day for the final coat to dry completly


    oh yeah and I used the filler primer

    If you really need something that durable get a true catalyzed urethane sprayed on such as Sikkens Rallye Black. Anything out of a can is going to be softer but a commercial brand like SEM will be as good as it gets.

    I guess you recommend SEM trim paint. Correct?
