Re: Dorade vent cowl restoration
If you find the 'for plastic' paint starts to crack because it is designed to BOND to plastic, but it is not flexible?
DupliColor makes "bumper paint" and "vinyl paint" that are designed to flex. Available in the larger auto stores. And IIRC Rustoleum and Krylon both make vinyl paints now. There's also one from one of the marine suppliers, designed to recoat MOB covers and fenders, probably only available in white.
Sometimes if paint is being reluctant to dry, you can mist it with "Japan drier" from the hardware store, or something from the auto boy supply, that will help pull off whatever solvents are still hiding in it. With care that it doesn't dissolve the base material itself.
