    will it work if you put plastic primer on first?

    No, it will still chip off. It will look like a puzzle with spaces in between.

    if you use regular paint the paint will chip and come off with crashes and regular use, it is good for a temporary fix, but to get a long lasting body, buy some lexan paint that flexes with the plastic
