Hi Viz,

I used it on my Hasbro Falcon as a base coat to help the paint stick to the plastic as normal primer and paint kept peeling off.

I got mine from B&Q but Halfords also sell it.

Try using the duplicolor brand adhesion promoter.  you can get it at any auto parts store.

its a little bit more money but it never fails

Good luck
