Fox Body Door Molding Paint Issues
I am restoring a 1989 LX Vert and am having a small problem with the side moldings. The plastic molding that bolts on has not been an issue, it is the rubber molding that is giving me the fits. All the molding is already removed and I am prepping it for primer then to be repainted after we reinstall it. When I bought the car the molding was already off and you could tell the molding was taken off a car sitting out somewhere. It had a haze of dirt and grime so I started sanded it off and wiped it down. The issue I am having is the primer will not dry.
I just used a can of Dupli-Color white primer. It works great on my small parts (as it always does) but for some reason on this set of molding it will not dry, even over night. I even took another piece, sanded it down and shot it with krylon fuzion and it did the same thing. after 24 hours it is still tacky.
We have painted moldings in the past when painting a car and had no issues, but the pieces where in better shape and we just had to scuff them and shoot them.
How can I prep the molding to take the primer and dry fully?
