BEFORE PAINTING: USE THE PROPER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
1. Wear Filtered Respirator Mask, Approved For Applying Automotive Aerosols
2. Work in Well Ventilated Area
SEM Self Etching Primer #3967. This primer is intended for coating bare metal and aluminum surfaces, but given me good results
on plastic. It's the only "self-etching" primer product I've used on plastic, so I can't vouch for what type of results you'll get from other brand "self etching" primer products. If you can't find SEM #3967, for primer coating plastic, I recommend using either SEM's "Flexible primer" #39133
or Plastikote brand "Flexible primer" #467
4 coats of primer... allow to cure for at least 2 hours
