    2002 Black VY S Pack
    attempting to paint my engine cover on my vy s pack i purchaced a good quality heat proof paint. which contains ceramic for heat distribution.
    the paint orange peeled straight away.

    do i need to use plastic primer or etch primer or wot.

    Yep, I'd say you need to rub it back first and also use some kind of plastic primer...
