Question
Covering plastic with monokote

Can plastics parts such as a cowling be covered with monokote?? This is my first attempt at monokote.

I've had some success covering fiberglass parts with Mono. Plastic parts maybe a challenge because of the heat needed to shrink and stretch it around compound curves like kind on cowls and wheel pants. You may end up distorting the part you are trying to cover with the heat. I would also test to make sure the adhesive will stick to the plastic and whether or not it will peel off after it cools.

In my view, it's more practical to paint the plastic parts, especially since this is a first time MK user.
