@magnetman you mention an adhesion promotor for plastics. Any more specific recommendation, brand/type etc? Looking to do the top of a roof top tent (ABS plastic hardshell) because I've had good success doing the roof of my 80. I think there will be other benefits to coating the rooftop tent hardshell (sound deadening, UV Protection, and durability from things scratching it).
Bulldog, 3M and Duplicolor make adhesion promoters. Follow directions in this PDF.
ABS does fairly well with adhesion promo compared to other plastics

I do my roof in white (great product!) but now I want to color match to my Toyota OEM color. I realize it won't be perfect match. That said, exactly what kind of tint do I need to ask for from auto paint store and what specific points of clafification need to made to them? I've read other instances where the monstaliner setup too quickly due to wrong kind of tint being added to base.
We've tested a number of auto paint company tints with ML.
PPG "Shopline" toners shows best compatibility and did not screw with potlife.
I tested Sherwin Williams once and the mix turned to cottage cheese in 10-15 mins.

Used 2 gallons but need to order a touchup quart. Lots of tips already on here but wish I’d have removed sunroof from the start, as I cracked it... whoops. And pulled the hood and hatch doors. And ideally the windhield and rear hatch glass. Pull almost everything you can. I took off the belt moulding, which was trash but broke like every clip and for an 80 series it was about 300$ for the full set. Prepare to spend a lot of money on paint supplies as well. I went back to home depot like 5 times at 50$ a pop. Also I’d probably have like 10 rollers on hand. Anyway, just wanted to share this color as I couldn’t find but one example anywhere, and share a few of my thoughts on the process.

Couldn't figure out how to Pm pics so thought I'd put them here. Been several months and pretty happy with results. Tried removing $99 paint job to expose orginal paint but made a mess. Epoxy primer and lt quartz gray
