Krylon Fusion Paint for Plastic

Okay, I am starting this thread for process, ideas and pictures for painting your Teryx plastic yourself. I have used the Krylon Fusion for Plastic spray paint on mine. The results on the hood were great. I already got some of the paint chipping off one of the fenders probably due to me not prepping the plastic and not using a clear coat.

According to Krylon no prep is needed other than cleaning the plastic and also no clear is needed. There are several threads on another forum website for Rhino's about this. Total cost should be around $50-60 for paint, clear and prep materials. I picked up my paint at Walmart and they had most of the colors available there. I am currently about to paint my plastic over again.

Here are my suggestions:
1. Rough up the plastic (not to rough but scuff it)
2. Thoroughly clean the plastic with alcohol, paint thinner, others cleaners that will not leave residue behind and then wash with water and make sure plastic is completely dry before painting.
3. Paint the plastics using very even stokes and distance from the plastic. This can be a challenge so take your time and do it carefully
4. Very lightly sand or wet sand between coats and clean plastic with water and dry before applying new coat
5. Paint is dry to touch within 20-1 hour. Krylon says to apply additional coats within 1 hour or after 1 week. It takes a week for the paint to fully bond with the plastic.
6. Possibly wet sand before applying clear
7. Use clear coat for chip resistance and strength which can be bought at many auto parts stores and in different sheens. Krylon does not require a clear but it seems the Rhino guys that have done this already have had best results whenusing a clear and it looks better as well.

I am in no way and expert at this, so any additional comments and suggestions are definitely welcome.

Thanks for posting this. I am assuming to removed all the plastics and painted both sides, yes?

I am tempted to give this a try, maybe not as a permanent thing, but to see how it looks. Now you did or did not paint the tailgate?

Curious to know if they have a matte black finish?

Hey thnks for the post that is very interesting. Not sure I have the guts to paint mine but I was thinking about doing something with the hood. Maybe some black or something to make it differant than everyone elses. I don't want to paint the entire hood just maybe a part of it.

Yes, you need to remove the plastic. I painted the hood, side fenders and the tailgate. I do beleive they have a flat black.

how does it work with the plastic flexing? auto paints have flex additives that are for movement. like on new cars plastic bumpers. let us know how this works. Chad.

I have seen Glamisrobs Teryx at Glamis and I must say it looked great!

I think the paint look is cool but I know I would screw it up out in the desert. Heck, I would probably destroy it just putting the cage back on! haha. Therefore, I was down at my local kawi dealer and they said I could pick up a new front hood, any color they offer, for around $200. That sounds like a pretty good deal to me. I wasnt too impressed with the aftermarket bodies so I think I am going that route!

08 Teryx, 5150 Motorsports 4 seat cage w/cooler rack, gas can rack, and light bar, 5150 front and rear bumbers, All In Custom Uph canvas top, Lowrance GPS, LED interior lighting, 4 Hella Offroad lights, optima battery, stereo with IPod hookup, Autometer fuel gauge, 14" black SS212 wheels with Maxxis Bighorn tires, black front end, silverstar headlamps, Corbeau front buckets, Dynatek CDI, UNI filter, machined clutch sheath, and much, MUCH more to come!

did you not want to use any plastic primer first?
i think it is duplicolor that makes a sandable plastic primer that hwas worked real well on all the plastic i have sprayed.

for the aftermarket body omment: did you check out Maier? I will try to get my pics up soon, theirs dont exactly do the teryx justice.
