Krylon Fusion Experience?

Any WF members with experience with Krylon Fusion? Does it chip? Need to be primed? How durable is it?

Was looking to spray the interior of the hard top and freedom panels. I know the interior of the rig was intentionally designed to be somewhat spartan, and figured painting the interior hard top/panels along with getting a headliner would add a tad bit of 'refinement' (I know... I know...)

Was curios if any if the members had tips/experience. Was also curios if I did do this, if the Hot Head liners adhesive backing would work in conjunction with the Krylon Fusion? Or would the adhesive strips just peel off with the paint?

I sprayed my TJ flares. Just cleaned them good and sprayed them. Lasted for several years. Started to get spots where the tires had kicked up stones and needed to be resprayed. I'm not sure how that would of turned out as I never got around to it.

Fusion is specifically for plastics and isn't the hard top is fiberglas? If so, make certain that Krylon Fusion is compatible..

You bring up a good point, didn't occur to me. Already finished the project based on other members input. Did a search and found some good reviews with individuals whom also used it on fiberglass with lasting results. Personally after letting it cure for several days, (not saying this is much) unused my fingernails go see if I could scratch it... No scratches.

I plan on installing HotHead Liners this weekend. Let's hope the adhesive doesn't make peel that Krylon off over time.

I've used it for various projects over the years. It stays pretty flexible, and holds pretty well over time. I would worry about how hot the top gets, I don't think there will be many other issues.

I just painted my hardtop with Fusion and it seems to be holding up fine
if you search you'll find a number of threads about the subject and most all have good results

Krylon Fusion works very well on metals and plastics, though it is intended for plastics.

I just used Krylon on my fender flares while the color is great and looks good from far away it looks pretty spotty and runny up close. The application was a nightmare, the spray was uneven and very wet and drippy. After I was finished 80% of the spray can was covered in paint, the vinyl gloves I was wearing were covered. And there was an absurd amount of heavy drops on the drop cloth. Maybe I had a bad can but I'll never use this stuff again.

Ok guys... after curing for over several days, I used my fingernail to do the scratch test. It comes off with medium pressure on the interior of the hard top panels. Question is... Put on a second coat (Previous had 2 coats) before installing the hot head liners? Or this scratch test shouldn't oppose an issue, and go ahead and install them?

I did a fiberglass golfcart body with their camo fusion paint. the only part that chipped was a spot where the original paint was chipping and took the new paint with it.
