I just got some brand new Primo pedals for my fix but i'm not diggin the color. They're all white pedals!!! I want to spray paint em' black but I'm wondering how well the paint would hold up if I just spray painted them straight up. I need some advice... Thanks yall :)

primo's are plastics right? depends how well of a paint job you want. pedals will get scrapped up either way. you can either spray them straight up or take your time and rough the surface with like a 600 grit sand paper and then spray it.
Why not CL or ebay them and buy the color you want ?

if they are plastic you could try that Krylon Fusion paint for plastic- it works pretty well. I've painted metal pedals with hi-temp engine paint, and it's held up only OK- and that was with pretty good prep. I'm of the opinion that pedals shouldn't look to good though- I mean, you put your feet on them right?

use vinyl dye. works amazing on plastic. i use it for my xbox 360 controllers. you can get it at an auto parts store like autozone.
