For starters, i'm sure this will come up in this topic.
The search function will answer your question, but since i just did mine a few months back, here is what i did:

You will need :
sandpaper - Medium grit all the way to a very fine grit
Primer
Adhesion Promoter (not everyone uses it)
Clearcoat.
Your paint (they make special plastic paints, i used Duplicolor to match the outside color of my truck)

Sand down your product with a medium grit to get rid of any major flaws in the thing being painted.
Clean off with soap and water.
Then go over again with a fine grit sandpaper.
Clean off with like denatured alcohol or something to remove any finger oil.
Prime, and let dry.
Sand with a very fine grit sandpaper.
Clean off with like denatured alcohol or something to remove any finger oil.
Prime, and let dry.

Clean off with like denatured alcohol or something to remove any finger oil.
Spray with you choice of color paint, let dry.
You may need 3 light coats. Never do heavy coats it will run and look sloppy.
Then apply a Clearcoat, and let dry for a week before putting back in.


Anyone else wanna cime in if i missed or messed something up here.
