Sun Visor Paint

Whats up everyone, just got a quick question about the sun visor i just found underneath a bunch of junk in the toolbox that the previous owner of my truck had, and it needs paint. I was really happy when I found it because I always thought they look awesome on obs fords, but it's faded red and my truck's blue. Im pretty sure it's made of fiberglass, so I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of paint to use on it and the best way to apply it. Thanks a lot,

Mike

You sand prime and find yourself some matching paint for your rig

Is there a certain type of primer for fiberglass? And what sandpaper should I use?

You can start with a low grit 100 or so (if there are some real rough spots), then work your way up to a high grit 1000 or so. With the low grit try not to apply to much pressure just go slow with light pressue. As for the primer, i think any will work, just make sure it is sandable primer.
