heck you could even just run a garden hose to run water along the surface as you sand if you don't wanna use a suds-y bucket.

wipe it down with a clean cloth and let it dry, go up a grit, and literally rinse and repeat

As you probably know, with the Krylon plastic paint, you don't actually need primer. It's specifically made to stick to the plastic without primer, or even sanding, for that matter. I use it as an undercoat for anything I re-paint, that is plastic. I'm also a nut for the Rustoleum brand hammered paints. I'd use them on everything if I could(I can). But, make sure you use the Rustoleum brand and not the American Accents or another brand of hammered paint. They just aren't as good as teh Rustoleum one is.

I have a few CRT's in the next room just collecting dust, and if I had a use for them at the moment, I'd probably re-paint them too. Good luck.

I ended up using satin black Krylon Fusion. I talked to my paint guy at work and he talked my out of sanding anything. I just finished painting it five minutes ago and it really did work well and the color looks ten times better than crappy white. I'll put up some pics tommorow. I'm still deciding one whether to put in some leds or not.

Cool. Good thing you didn't sand it at all. You'd be dis-appointed.

Can't wait to see the pics.

Well I finished the painting last night and I just got done putting her back together. Dang, she looks great with the new paint. If anyone has a 226bw, the paint looks exactally the same. The pictures don't do justice.

Nice! and props for the ping-pong table.

I've seen people use a gloss black like that, and then add 3 coats of clear-coat and it's real shiny and nice-looking

The paint guy at work told me that with the plastic paint its better not to add any clearcoat and he said it should hold up really well because the paint burns itself into the plastic. I tested it today on another piece of plastic and after 24 hours it was scratch resistant except for a knife.
