Default Re: How should I paint an engine shroud?

I personally have no experience with Krylon Fusion paint. Is it the one made especially for plastic? I saw some paint recently that was formulated for use on plastic lawn furniture etc. It might have been the Fusion stuff. I don't know how the Staton/Subaru plastic compares but I've painted several Titan shrouds using various rattle can paints. Degreasing is the important part, sanding and priming is needed if you're going for a very smooth finish. The shrouds have always taken paint very well but the fuel tanks are a different story. They're made from a different plastic than the shrouds and they tend to blister well after the paint is dry. Don't ask me why.
