I have had good luck using the plastic specific paints on various non motorcycle parts in the past. They work good if you prime properly and most importantly clean the part well first. Only down side, as with other painted items, they can be scratched or chipped. Not much help on the dyeing, but it is another option.
Yeah, I heard the plastic specific paint was pretty good , just wanted something more permanent and scratch resistant. I use to be into rc cars and dyed some rims and they turned out real nice , just wondering if it is the same type of plastic I guess.
Used ordinary heat paint for exhaust on my cam covers.
Rug them up a bit w very fine paper and clean thorougly
w alcoholbased solvent. Cleans good & gives good surface
to paint. 3 thin layers. No specials, ovens etc.
Looks great after 17 ooo km! 8)
