    I think they use the same paint, it's the preparation / primer that's different.
    They have to make sure the plastic is really clean (to get rid of silicones, polishes, etc) they then use a special primer that prepares / etches the surface.

    I asked about them putting plastisier in the paint, but said not needed as the mudguards don't bend or flex.
    I also asked about extra laquer to protect from stonechips, etc, but they said that can make the top laquer coat too brittle.
    One of the other painters suggested not painting the surface that was in the wheel arch. You might be able to see that in the pictures of my thread.
    That way there is less to worry about getting chipped.
