Prep is always key to a good, long lasting paint job. Wash with TSP, then use a primer, THEN paint.
Don't forget to give the plastic carriers a light sanding before priming and painting. The sanding will rough up the surface giving the paint something to adhere to. You might consider using a spray paint for plastic also.
Hi Jewel! I would do the prep like Naomie suggested. I would also use a spray paint intended for plastic.
Thank you all. My carriers are very old and so faded I'm getting ashamed to take my pets to the vet in them. Yet they are still in good shape, so I thought I'd try to paint them. Thanks for the info. As soon as the weather co-operates I''ll try to get them done.
