Just returned from the local automotive paint store, where I bought paint
for my ElCamino steering wheel. This one is the softer vynyl or plastic or
rubberized stuff, not like the solid plastic Vair ones. In talking with the
counterman, it was mentioned about the rubbing off problem, and he said it
was due to poor adhesion , obviously. And the solution is proper cleaning,
and use of an 'adhesion promoter' , by SEM pt # 77723, spray can, this to be
put on after the cleaning with lacquer thinner, or your favorite stuff,
followed by a soap and water wash, and rinse, and thoro drying.
The can says the vapors may ignite explosively, so make sure the garage
doors are tight and the water heater pilot is lit.
Both VHT and SEM have these vynyl paints, in a good range of color. You wont
find them at Pep Boys or Autozone, go to a good automotive paint store. Or,
you my be able to order online. an' they aint cheap neither.
