Afternoon all,

Having dealt with Rick on a few occasions and rather than inundate him with messages here is the point to register your request for Volico paint. This must by done by 12th September to allow Rick to process, order and receive the paint. Once received by Rick he will PM the requesters, asking for payment and your delivery address. Note I am only collecting interest not making the order.

Table of interest:

Apologies, very senior moment. Can I change from twist to swing!
So to confirm for me, one swing one platinum
 
Hi - what is the general consensus regarding using this paint - is volico primer and top coat required for a perfect factory finish or are there alternative options - nice to hear from someone who has already used the product
Cheers Dave

Dave, I have used it with great success. As long as the plastic to be coloured is clean and dust free and the soft touch is removed then so far I have never found a need to primer. That said if the existing paint is breaking down then I would suggest using the primer first, also if the surface is porous. If you are recolouring fabric or leather then I would use primer, the colour and then top coat. The top coat adds extra wear resistance so say on switch gear very useful. Again as yet not needed to use any top coat. Ultimately you will have to decide if either are needed for your application. You can always spray top coat on after but obviously not primer. I also do not know how well Volico paint works with other primers or top coats. Volico is trusted by OEMs.

I’ve successfully used non Volico etch primer and no sign of any reaction with the paint 6 weeks in
