You can spray it anywhere u can reach

They actually make this one that I thought worked the best. I found it at home depot. They may have it at wal-mart or such place

Uhm I have another question about the paint and the primer. Do they make a krylon fusion primer? like do I get the sandable primer? and what kind of sandpaper would you advise? does the krylon paint for the actual color have to be automotive fusion? do they even make that? I was just wondering. cause ok
really careful and literal about things.

just get a real low abrasive sand paper like a finishing type paper. u don't wanna make deep gauges into the plastic just rough it up to primer it then once u primer it kinda sand it some to rough it up also

Krylon fusion paint is non automotive it is made for plastic but the red matches very well with the ford color

Krylon primer


krylon sandable primer
