    It stuck, but I broke the car ages ago, so I can't remember exactly what happened.
    Sorry, My question was kinda bad. Had any experience of it lately?

    if its prepped correctly, you'll be fine. put protective clear coats over it all.

    If you prepare correctly you should be ok, clear coats as stated above. But why not go with paint that is made for the surfaces?

    Here is an shot of what I did. There is not a single crack, fade, scratch after a year which includes temps of -30c and +35c. (Canada has some really radical temp swiings)

    The paint I used is called Krylon Fusion, but works with plastic.
