You can use whatever you'd like. I think the Krylon fusion is designed for plastic...so primer and/or adhesion promoter aren't needed I don't think. And clear coat isn't really needed cause it's inside the lens- so it doesn't need the extra wear resistance.


Edit- I didn't mention that you can use those things if you want tho. Clear coat can add more shine to the paint....Primer never really hurts anything I don't think...

I wet sanded the chrome off first to get to the plastic. It's a very thin coating and comes off quick.

Primed with Duplicolor adhesion promoter.

Painted with 3 coats of color matched paint.

No clear coat since it was being protected by the headlight lens.

Rustoleum falt black from Home Depot gives a good finish. Ive used Krylon fusion and did not like The finish. I never used primer and lights have turned out great.
