ed side moulds (paint help)

i was just wondering if just ordinary primer automotive will do for spraying side moulds and respraying front & rear bumpers plus a spoiler (metal) i know it wll work on the spoiler but howbout the rest

it will also be used on door handles, mirrors, garnish and a few other plastic things... so what you recomend? BTW i don't have the paint yet so what to get is flexible

I think its called flexi-prime for the side moulds, and when i did my bars i used ordinary primer and it still looks good, over 1 year later

On plastic any auto primer works. If the metals bare metal you'll need to use etch primer 1st, then primer and then top coat.

plastic tech primer for just the plastics or Epoxy primer for bare metal and plastics - either one Is what I use .

but ordinary primer should hold up quit good aswell ..

Re: ed side moulds (paint help)

Fior the side moulds and the bare plastic on the bars, use plastic primer, then an undercoat, then colour.

Same for the handles and other bare plastic parts.
