    Just use some adhesion promoter on the plastic flares and you should be able to use these steps

    Incredible work. You've given me the guts to try this on my E30 deck lid.

    I think the same rules would apply, except for having to add adhesion promoter to the plastic before primer. Also maybe don't use a self etching primer.
