  • Ammonia-based cleaner or paint thinner
  • Drop cloth

Steps:

  1. Using an ammonia based cleaner, wipe down mailbox to remove any dust or particles. If the plastic is new, wipe down with paint thinner for best results.
     
  2. Completely tape off any area that you do not wanted painted. A low tack tape is preferred.
     
  3. Shake Fusion can for 2 minutes or more.
     
  4. Applying in a well ventilated area, hold can 8 to 10 inches from surface and spray in a sweeping motion from side to side.

  6. Apply a thin coat and allow to dry for 30 seconds.
     
  7. Apply multiple thin coats until surface is completely covered.
     
  8. Remove tape immediately after spraying.
     
  9. Fusion dries in 15 minutes or less, and can be handled in about 1 hour.
     
  10. Fusion must cure a full 7 days to become fully chip and scratch resistant.
