The justy has silver plastic wheel covers. The plastic has flacked away. I want to paint them black with Blue Lettering.. I have plastic binder for spray paint. I have bumper paint and trim paint. I am thinking bumper paint. I also have primer. Any suggestions.

use a "for plastic" spray paint, like Krylon Fusion. It has a fan tip so it lays up smooth. it also has flex agents and bonding agents specially for plastics. No primer necessary!

the bumper and trim paint also has these special additives. no priming necessary.

Thanks. Automotive painting is amung my most disliked talents because, well, i suck at it. I can tolerate bumpers and trim as long as they are black. Black paint hides all sins, followed by camo.
