How did you get your plastic to look so good? Is it new or did you do something to it? Looks great!

Scuff it with fine grit sandpaper....

Hit it with a plastic rustolium primer....

then with the black plastic spraypaint... Still looks as good as day I sprayed it, and that was a year ago now.

The plastics were never replaced. SO looking at those photos, they are the same ones - just brought to life.
