Make sure you fine sand it with 400-600 wet and dry first so the paint and undercoat will 'stick'

You should try Rust-O-Leum's...



Check out the pickguard I painted



and the trem back cover



I didn't have to sand the plastic because the paint molecularly bonds to the plastic. Or maybe, the fine pick scratches serves the same purpose as sanding a new, unscratched pickguard, which promotes paint adhesion.

I clearcoated after colorcoating and so far, just like painted plastic garden chairs, almost impossible to scratch or remove with regular use or abuse.

Don't rough it up just remove the gloss

i used to take auto body in school so i don't think there is much of a difference between the painting jobs. the best thing to do is sand it down with a fine grit sandpaper like the 400-600 previously mentioned till there isn't any "shine" on it. what i mean by that is when you look at it with a light reflecting off of it you'll see the shine so sand it till there ain't any on it. should take but 5-10 mins. prime it. the scuff it sand it once more, then paint it, the clear coat it to get the shine back.
