Painting a Carbon spinner

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I want to paint the spinner for my plane. I want to paint it white.
I will be using the carbon spinner that Azure Hobbies sells. Its inexpensive compared to a Tru-turn spinner. And should be much better for painting than trying to paint aluminum.

What is a good paint to do this ? And what should I do for prep work to the spinner ?

Re: Painting a Carbon spinner

Interested as well. I have tried to paint an aluminum spinner and landing gear as well as CF landing gear. I managed to have no problems painting the aluminum gear, but had a hard tome painting the spinner and the CF landing gear. I even bought a primer for aluminum, which helped a bit. All pieces were sanded down and cleaned with soap and water, then wiped with a tack cloth before painting. Eventually all got painted, but there has to be a better and easier way.
