I don't see why not. I would use the fusion paint for plastic.

IF you use the Fusion paint, also add a few coats of clear on top of it to strengthen the paint.....i used Fusion on mine, and wish i had added the clear....mine are chipping now from rocks...

Fusion + a few clear coats like Maurice said, black should look great.

Paint everything that is gray black. I used black auto trim paint. Last long and it doesn't ship that easily. The only chips I have are on the piece under my front bumper.

yeah... i did my front bumper with the krylon fusion stuff and it was so awesome....and i did my rear bumper with just normal black rrattle can and i did an awsome job.. but the normal paint didn't look half as good as the fusion stuff.. i tried an automotive paint shop and this #$%^ said that her plastic paint cost 13 buck a can... what the hell...but anyways thanx for the input...
