    I do not do a whole lot of paint work but I need to paint a few polycarbonate panels. Is there a primer to use or a process to make this happen and not flake right off? If so, what is it and where do I get it. Also what would the proper paint be. The color I need is Duronotic bronze. Any help or knowledge is greatly appreciated as always.

    :thankyou::thankyou::thankyou:

    You can use matthews acrylic polyurethane with the addition of tie-bond adhesive as primer (this will most likely be opaque, however - my city has started not allowing translucent backgrounds for backlit sign cabinets)
