I'm not so sure that's a very hot idea... plastics are flexible, and even spray paint doesn't last long on em, even when you etch em first...

I'd specifically look for something rubbery and flexible if you're putting it on plastic, and I'd definitely do a REALLY good job sanding out any mold release, and etch the plastic really well too.

Even then though, I don't believe I would even attempt that myself, but I've seen good things done with paint and plastic, so I suppose it's probably doable...

What plastic are you wanting to do it on? I'd imagine if it's not going to be bent, you could just scuff it, clean it good, and spray it with any spray on bedliner. If it's meant to be bent (ie fender flares in heavy off-roading situations), I would rethink spraying bedliner on them...it'll prolly crack off.

I used Herc on my fender flares and it didn't last at all. I got some serious mud on them and when I pressure washed it the Herc came right off, in clumps. I have had some success so far with spray on rubberized undercoating but I am not expecting that to last very long.

I did just repaint my center console with metallic flecked paint, that seemed to adhere pretty well and gave it a decent texture. Not sure how well it would do outside with the wind wearing it down though...
