They have paint you can buy at a hardware store thats made for plastic. I used bedliner on mine and its holding up well.

Did you use any adhesion promoter or anything? Or just paint right on the plastic?

i washed em good in the sink then wiped everything down good to make sure was dry set em out in the sun for a bit and just painted starting with very light coats.even the rear bumper cover after getting stepped on and what not by looking at it you could never tell it was painted. my factory pieces were gray when i started.

Okay, thanks. I was going to use satin black that I have leftover from my headlights and paint my OHC. It should work great as it won't have to stand up to anything like that.

I like it a lot. I also have part of my rocker panels done with it, about a inch or so up the door. So it helped in blend in real good. If you want I can get some pictures of it in a few days.

I've used Krylon Fusion on my valance and grille and I love it. No fading or chipping on the grille which was painted a while back. All I did was wash them down with dish soap and hoat water and a brush, dried with paper towel, then let sun dry. Wipe it down with a cotton wrag or something to get any other particals off and then go ahead and start spraying a couple light coats.
