Changing color of a plastic part, Wrap?

Recommended Posts

I have a part that is currently black,  I want it red.  It's part of the Windshield  brace on a G4.  Was looking at Wraps, but I don't see anything for that  piece.  Looking to accent the machine, not change it totally.  Doo doesn't make it in red that I can see.   Suggestions?

I was thinking about it last night, finally realized I could probably get the wrap online and do it myself.  Youtube here I come!

I have had good luck with painting plastic items like that. Clean it good, sand it lightly, and use Krylon paint. Be sure to let it dry for a few days inside where it's warm. 

 

If you aren't sure if the paint will stick, spray some on only the back side first, where it would not show if you don't like it. Then you can flex the panel, rub it with something, and get a good idea if you will be happy with the results  before you paint the top. 

 

You're only risking the price of a can of paint...
