I am having painting problems with the shifter bezel. Whenever I paint it, there are areas in which the paint shrivels up and it wont dry/stick. If i rub it the paint just peels off? I used the same procedure to clean the other parts I've painted: soap/water then some alcohol.
All the pieces came out fine except this one. I have 600 sand paper which I used after the first mess up, tried painting again but same result. Will I need primer on this piece for the paint to stick to it?
I primed my all of my pieces. You might want a little finer grit sand paper, make sure you don't get too deep of scratches..
Make sure you put atleast 2-3 coats on everything, especially door pieces, or pieces that you will be touching or rubbing against, because w/o clear the paint will
