Recommended Paint and Primer for Plastic Cover

Postby railhead on Wed Aug 19, 2009 2:15 pm

Hey all

Just acquired a 73-key stage piano, and it needs a lot of work -- which is fine with me! Cosmetically, one of the big eyesores is the plastic cover, as it's in pretty rough shape (faded to grey, etc.).

Chris mentioned they just sand and paint them, so I thought I'd ask here to see what brands any of you can recommend. Are we doing the full sand, prime, then paint?

Thanks for any tips!

Man oh man, I tried this, but I just can't get an even coat -- I can see the banding from the spray can. I know it's just my spray method, but I'm at my wit's end trying to get a smooth, even coat.

If I could find a new one I'd buy it — I'd think someone would be making replacements nowadays...

I sanded as many of the scratches out as possible . Then I used adhesion promoter . Then I used krylon
fusion. The trick is to spray light even coats . Patience is very helpful . You have to let it cure between coats. It also helps to have a dry warm day. Good luck !
