Paint for fiberglass

I see everyone using the Fusion for plastic, can I use the same stuff for fiberglass?

You can use anything on fiberglass, plastic has chemicals in it that doesn't allow regular paint to stick to it unless you use a promoter.

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Should I just use normal spraypaint then? Will a see any decrease in quality? Most of the Krylon jobs look pretty good.

The only dif between the fusion paints and regular paints is the adhesion promoter. You shouldn't need it on fiberglass. Check into the valspar stuff, it seems to have nice results

you can use anything on fiberglass best is auto paint like dupont with a clear coat and it will come out bitchan ...go to a auto body suplyer paint shop and pick you color out you will need 1/2 gal. to do the hole thing

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE FASTER

BUT ONLY A FEW CAN FLY
